19th Century Swedish Family Group Silhouette with Watercolor

Cut and Pasted Family Silhouette with Watercolor

Measuring 15 1/2″ x 19 1/4″ sight in a 17 1/2″ x 21 1/2″ gilt frame (liner), this cut and pasted family group silhouette is greatly enhanced by the watercolor work depicting trees and flooring. The title and signature, dated 1820, indicate  an origin in the low countries. The primitive quality, reminiscent of the portrait paintings of the Shutes, is so charming.
