Mabel George Haig (1889 – 1961)
Lady in black dress
Oil on canvas, 100 x 80 cm
This is the portrait of a lady dressed in a black cloth and a red flower in her hair. Looking at the style of her clothing, it is probably a lady in the United States of America, inspired by the European fashion of that time. The painting comes without a frame.
