Including the frame measures approximately 25 x 19 cm. The image itself is approx 19 x 13 1/2 cm Fabulous antique portrait which looks to be coloured chalks over pencil . Moody, atmospheric and really telling a story about the subject. Drawn by S.S Kerr in 1821. The work is extensively inscribed on the reverse with a full history. The portrait is of Martha McLauchlain when seventy years of age. She was clearly a seamstress or something similar and was from Holmwood in Oxfordshire. I know nothing about the artist but it is a very good portrait and with all the written history, I feel this is a work of some significance. Well framed in a giltwood frame and all in good condition
