Carl Roth - Portrait of a Sitting Lady
Pastel on toned paper
Signed and dated lower right: 'Carl Roth gem. 1842'
Conditions: Slight traces of age, framed
Carl Roth was an artist who specialised in portraiture and landscapes. It is documented he resided in Vienna from 1850 and was a pupil of Dafinger.
The painting ‘Portrait of a Sitting Lady’ is an elegant portrayal of a seated lady in a white lace dress and transparent red scarf, resting gracefully on a green cushion placed on the arm of a chair. Her style of hair and her clothing would indicate a lady from polite society. Perhaps a commissioned portrait or maybe the artist’s wife due to the sensual display of her right shoulder.
