Dutch School, 17th Century Style
Portrait of a Woman Holding a Book
Oil on panel, 18 3/8 x 15 3/4 in. (46.5 x 40.0 cm), framed.
Condition: Retouch, skinning, fine craquelure, surface dust and grime.
The panel appears old, but the handling of the paint would suggest a later, perhaps 19th century, date.
