Russell Iredell Oil on Canvas*

Item Description

Oil on canvas by the American artist Russell Iredell (b. Feb. 1889).

The identity of the subject is unknown but she is a beautiful and rather Pre-Raphaelite looking woman relaxing in a wild garden dominated by tall, colourful foxgloves.

She is wearing a sumptuous robe and looks to be deep in thought, her strong, thick hair partially shading her face.

Iredell studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts before moving to Los Angeles in 1922.  There, he became a well known portrait painter of Hollywood celebrities and maybe this is one of them.

Signed R. Iredell verso and in a very old frame, possibly the original.  The date is reckoned to be circa mid 1920’s.

Measuring approximately 69 X 59 cm overall with the image around 50 X 40 cm.
