About

19th-century interior portrait of a lady of wealth having a chat with her maid. This is an important example for the artist's work both in its composition and quality. Stevens was a painter mostly of genre scenes, interiors, and historical subjects and this is one of his finest paintings. The subject is of a lady chatting to her maid possibly imparting some confidence or tale. The artist has captured perfectly the interaction of both figures and with the use of bright color has achieved a very impacting image. The piece is framed in a plaster and wood frame and the painting has been cleaned and re-varnished.
