Lady, 1830 era, portrait with micromosaic jewelry.

A richly detailed portrayal of 1830s fashion, this rare testament to jewelry history vividly captures the Biedermeier era.
It's uncommon to observe such well-described Biedermeier-era micromosaic jewelry in a painting.

These micromosaics were often souvenirs purchased by travelers of that time, known as Grand Tour objects.

The portrait is executed in oil on canvas.

The canvas is original.

The gilded wooden frame dates back to the 19th century, and the portrait is in good condition, having been professionally cleaned by a restorer. In the bottom left.
Faint traces of a partially legible but undeciphered signature and a possibly 1833 date are discernible.

The portrait features the lady seated before an exquisite basket filled with various flower varieties. This detail aligns the portrait with the Romanticism style, which often depicts individuals in harmony with nature and plants. In this case, individual flowers might allude to different meanings.

Certainly, the portrayed woman may not have been of great beauty, but one thing is certain—she was a trendsetter, meticulous in her attire and attentive to the fashion trends and hairstyles of the era. This is evident in her sophisticated hairstyle, and one can only speculate on the time she invested in achieving those curls, as seen in this portrayal.
