Oil on board

Excellent condition, appears to be in the original frame.
This lovely example of Prior’s work has all the attributes we love to see. This typical composition with the drapery swag left of the sitter is further complimented with a pleasing look from the sitter wearing a necklace and a black dress highlighted with faint stripes.
