Portrait of a Young Woman (1880) by Albert Ludovici Sr.

9,500.00

In this Victorian painting, a young woman sits looking into the distance with a reflective gaze, her arm hangs casually over the arm of the bench while the other hand sits in her lap, which is laid with a bright polychromatic fabric. Soft, loose brushstrokes and a light source from the upper left corner, depict the gold brocade details of her dress and the simple gold jewellery against her fair skin; the use of sfumato further illuminates the sitter as shadows fill the right side of the composition. Pre-Raphaelite undertones can be seen in the softly-rendered strong facial features, the large area of colour that comprise the composition, and, though not rendered with photographic realism, the attention to detail.

Albert Johann Ludovici, Sr. (1820 – 1894) was Victorian painter who spent his life between the cities of Paris and London, painting scenes of society at leisure, as well as being an established portrait painter. He exhibited often at the Society of British Artists, of which he was the Treasurer.

Dimensions: 26 x 21.5 in.
