Summary description

Oil painting on canvas, An Unknown Girl, English School, 17th century. A full-length portrait, standing to left, wearing ostrich feather hat, white dress and red cloak. She holds a wreath of roses in her left hand. The anomalous appearance of the portrait, in that the head of an adult seems to be attached to the body of a child, is probably the result of restoration.


Originally from Baddesley Clinton and probably purchased in a sale; given with Packwood house and contents by Graham Baron Ash (1889 - 1981) in 1941
