|Description||This superb British Victorian portrait oil painting is by much noted and exhibited female artist Maud Porter. Painted circa 1890 it is a seated portrait of a young woman and her terrier dog. They are both sat on a bench and the young lady has a letter in her hand. Her little dog is looking at her with some concern which Porter has perfectly captured. The details in her face and lace dress are just lovely as is the brushwork. The soft pink of her parasol is mirrored in her hat and cheeks. A super British portrait oil painting by a noted female Victorian artist of her day who exhibited many times at The Royal Academy from 1888 to 1905.
