OIL PAINTING BY HARRIET LIVINGSTON PATTERSON TITIAN LIKE
This stunning work of art was painted by Harriet Livingston Patterson in about 1832, while she was staying in Rome, Italy, at the same time when her father, the noted Commodore Daniel Patterson of the U.S. Navy, supervised the Mediterranean Squadron. The painting is inspired by Titian's biblical paintings (as noted on back of painting-see photos). In this painting, a woman dressed in Renaissance attire holds a bible as she looks on hauntingly. The painting is framed in a hand-carved, gilt wood frame, which is in good condition, with a few chips and nicks due to its' age (please see photos). On the back of the painting the following is written "Painted in Rome about 1832 by Harriet Livingston Patterson, . Titian's Bible".
The painting measures 5 inches in height and 4 1/4 inches in width, and the frame measures 12 inches in height and 11 1/2 inches in width.
