Portrait Painting - ScarboroughWilliam Harrison Scarborough
Original oil painting on canvass of an elderly Southern woman. Attributed to William Harrison Scarborough (1812-1871). Believed to have been painted in 1865 in Georgia, though most of his work was done in Tennessee and South Carolina. The previous owner had this piece professionally restored and so it's in excellent condition considering its age. It's a wonderful example of the portrait paintings that became very popular among the wealthy in the 19th century.
Scarborough became a well recognized and respected portrait painter during the 1800s, especially in the Southern states. His works currently hang in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Morris Museum of Art, the Gibbes Museum of Art, the Columbia Museum of Art, and the University of South Carolina, among other institutions. He rarely signed his portraits, so this one too is unsigned. This painting comes framed in the gold frame you see pictured. Note that the frame is not original to the painting.
- The size of the painting is about 25" x 30".
- Overall size is about 30" x 34.5".
Part of our Estate Collection and in excellent vintage condition. The paint has the typical minor crack lines that you would expect for a piece of this age.
