Portrait of a Lady (Mrs Byres) - 19th Century English School

Incredibly fine Victorian portrait of an elderly Lady, oil on canvas. Inscribed on plaque as Mrs Byres and the name Maria White (possibly the artist). The quality of the portrait is exceptional from the tones and detail in the face and hands to the beautiful treatment of light and textures of the clothing. A couple of tiny losses to the paint in the dark areas. Superb period gilt frame with some losses.

Measurements:41" x 34" Framed
