Portrait of a Young Woman by Louis Dalpayrat
Quite beautiful circular framed enamel on copper portrait of a young lady with flowers and leaves in her long, fair hair.
Captured in profile, the paleness of her skin contrasting so well with the strong colours of the vivid red flowers, bright green leaves and dark blue background.
Highlighted with silver paillons which gives additional luminosity to the image.
Painted by the French master enameller Louis Dalpayrat (1838-1901) who worked both in Limoges and Paris . He also taught for a time at the South Kensington Art School and while in London completed commissions for the Victoria and Albert Museum where more than 40 of his pieces are still held.
This framed plaque bears his monogram towards the edge, measures 10 cm in overall diameter and dates from tha late 1800’s.
Fitted with an easel for standing and also with a ring so that it may be hung if preferred.
