A Most Distinguished Pair of 19th C. Full-Bodied Silhouettes
Lovely cut and paste form, dark gray colored paper, extensive use of color embellishments in ink and gouache. Both are seated upon striking red period chairs, in contrast to the vibrant colors of the formal garments. Textural use of black ink with impressive attention to detail in every adornment make this pair a beautiful and fascinating find. Both silhouettes have been remounted onto paper with matte and are presented in early frames and glass. There are minor condition issues, but none so great as to detract from the splendor of this pairing. $1,750
