Today we are happy to present for sale a wonderful antique Harold Wolcott oil on board painting!

This beautiful oil on board painting is masterfully painted and executed. Tastefully done in the French Impressionist manner, the painting features a green and purple palette of soft and warm colors. The piece depicts a lovely young woman with beautiful golden blond hair braided at the back and adorned with a pale lavender bow. The young lady has creamy alabaster skin and a serene expression on her face. She wears a white and purple ruffled blouse and attentively reads a book. The chiaroscuro green background adds to the moodiness of the composition.

The piece is signed by the artist at the upper left corner, and frames in a period white-washed giltwood frame which complements the painting beautifully.

The painting presents well and is in very good antique condition, with very minor display wear and patina commensurate with age. The painting’s surface is bright and clean and with no visible tears or repairs. The frame is in good antique condition, with minor wear and patina commensurate with age, and a few small (and hard to notice) small losses, stable age-related fractures, and repairs. Add Impressionist style and elegance to any interior with this delightful portrait.
