Joseph Blackburn, Portrait, Lady in Blue


Joseph Blackburn, Portrait, Lady in Blue, entire view

Attributed to Joseph Blackburn (Active 1752 through 1777)
Oil on canvas
The appeal of Blackburn’s work is apparent in this half-length portrait of a stylish young
lady with fashionably rouged cheeks rendered in an elegant pose; a pinned ribbon
ornaments her bodice and meticulously rendered lace is featured on her sleeves and
the square-cut neck of her dress. The subjects outstretched arms and hands are typical
of Blackburn’s oeuvre. The canvas was long lined and ago re-stretched; there is
extremely minor scattered in-painting to cracklature. (Dimensions: 27.75 by 35.75”.)
