Charles Joshua Chaplin
Beautiful Woman, The Coy Look

circa 1880

$45,000

About

If Vogue magazine existed in the late 19th century, this sitter could be on the cover. The depth of her feminine beauty and sweetness is mesmerizing. She looks at you. You look back. The work is impeccably rendered in a soft palette without any brush strokes. A charming rendition of a beautiful European young woman whose face has flawless features. It's executed in a very polished paint technique similar to William-Adolphe Bouguereau. Although the portrait was done around 140 years ago, the sitter looks of the moment. The work is traditional yet contemporary. In most portraiture, the beauty of the sitter is a major factor in determining price. Clearly, The Coy Look features one of the more beautiful women from any 19th century portrait. The Coy Look circa 1870 - circa 1890 Oil on canvas Signed 'Ch Chaplin' center right h: 18.2 x w: 15 in / h: 46.2 x w: 38.1 cm Eugene Edelman Gallery Christie's, London Framed.
