Portrait of a Lady from Piasa

Portrait de jeune fille en robe de bal @ Piasa, 21 Dec 2012

This potrait appeared at Piasa, in Paris, on 21 December 2013 (lot 107, oil on canvas, 66.0 x 55.0 cm), as by Hermann Winterhalter (est. € 2,000-3,000).

The fact that the portrait is not by the artist is apparent on stylistic grounds.

This unfortunate misattribution is further confirmed by the presence of a signature in the lower right-hand-side of the painting, which is also not in Hermann Winterhalter’s handwriting.

There is little doubt that this portrait was painted by a professional artist, most likely from the second half of the nineteenth century.

At the time of writing, the portrait remains unsold. Hopefully, with further research, the correct attribution will be found.
