This charming folk portrait has many appealing attributes; the juxtaposition of the arms, one holding a colorful bouquet of flowers, the other holding a cat on her lap; the color of the blue dress and the painted floor. The most notable features of this artist seen here closely resemble the work of Joseph Whiting Stock. Although the application of the paint is quite different from Stock’s paintings, this portrait could be mistaken for his work. It is fair to assume that both artists lived and worked in close proximity at some point in their careers.
