19th century Austrian Portrait of a young girl in white dress with Red bows
19th century Austrian Portrait of a young girl in white dress with Red bows.
Wonderful 19th-century Austrian portrait of a young girl in a pretty white and red dress.
Simonson was an Austrian painter of portraits and historical subjects. He trained and painted in Germany and Austria and this example is typical of the high-quality paintings he was able to produce.
This piece came from a collection of portraits which included another example of the artist's work.
The piece is also inscribed 'Vien', so either the artist lived and painted this piece in Vienna or the sitter lived in Vienna.
The painting has been cleaned and re-varnished and the frame has also been restored in the UK.
The style is typical of the high Victorian style that was so popular during the 1860s-1870s and I'm sure would have been painted for a wealthy Austrian family.
This example by Simonson is signed and dated 1862. Both paintings were obviously painted together and I'm sure the sitters are sisters.
