1950s Cristellys Oil on Panel Painting Portrait Woman Lady Hat Parisienne /50s Midcentury Original Oil Painting French Beauty Impressionist
Original art work by the mid-century painter and illustrator Vincente Cristellys, this is a signed oil on panel, rectangular form piece depicting a fashionable lady in an elaborate hat. The style is in his signature semi-impressionist tone, with lots of expressionist brushstrokes. Back has writing, giving this picture the title "Parisienne" – and indeed she looks very much like the fashionable french ladies depicted in the last third of the 19th century by great artists such as Manet and Renoir.
