Portrait of a Lady with an Attendant Holding an Oval Portrait
Studies of a Hand and Drapery (verso)
Jacopo Amigoni, Italian, 1682 - 1752
Amigoni worked in Germany, England, and Spain, as well as in his native Venice, and was known for his portraits. This study for a double likeness, in which a lady of high rank presents an image of a man (perhaps deceased?) in an oval frame, may have been done during the artist's stay in England between 1729 and 1739.
