About

This is a fine Belle Epoque oil painting portrait of a young redheaded beauty strikingly lit from behind by the eminent American painter Harry Herman Roseland (1867-1950). ‘American Beauty’ is signed by the artist, and hangs in a superb quality, newly commissioned gold metal leaf frame. As with all of the original antique oil paintings we sell it is offered in excellent condition, having just been professionally cleaned and re-varnished. Clients should also note that every painting is sold with complimentary tracked and signed for international shipping. Harry Roseland was one of the most prominent American subject picture painters of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He is most famous today for his poignant and compassionate scenes depicting the working lives of poor African-Americans but his early portraits of young society beauties are much rarer and no less impressive. Today, Roseland’s most famous admirer is perhaps Oprah Winfrey whose favorite painting in own her personal collection is Roseland's 1904 work ‘To the Highest Bidder’. Dimensions: (framed) 56cm x 46cm (22” x 18”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 41cm x 31cm (16¼” x 12¼”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: Private French collection.
