C1905 Edwardian Oil on Canvas Portrait Painting


A finely observed portrait of a respectable Edwardian gel. This oil on canvas painting is housed in a rich, gilded Louis XV style frame. The painting is signed and added lower left. G.A.T 16/10/05. The canvas is supplied by a Melbourne retailer, so it is local. Alas! Probably not the eminent George Augustine Taylor. Nevertheless a charming image from the earliest days of Federation when Melbourne was the new nation's Capital. Note the fine jewellery. Madame was not poor, and was likely to be either prominent or a relative of a prominent personage in the new Capital.
