A rare pair of exquisite oil on canvas portraits of noble ladies,
Continental school, circa 1730's.
Why we love them
We love the freshness of these beautiful portraits; the artist's exquisite treatment of velvet, fur and, particularly, lace.
While the identities of neither the sitters nor of the artist are known, these portraits, possibly intended as wedding gifts, are wonderfully decorative and pleasing to look at, evoking the elegance and grandeur of the 18th century, the golden age of the arts.
