A lovely pair of silhouettes in a slightly larger than usual size. Silhouettes were very popular in the 18th century and given as an alternative to a painted portrait. Their popularity carried on through the 19th & early 20th century.
Sadly along with many other traditional techniques there was lesser a demand for this type of painting but I’ve always loved them and have my own personal collection.
- I believe late 19th early 20th Century
- 32 x 22 cm
- the frames are a little tatty but the paintings and mounts are in perfect condition
