Hidden Away all these years

My husband bought a picture frame at an antique store and hidden under the picture was this artwork that was done with pastels. The shading is amazing. The picture that was in the frame was an ad from the turn of the century. I wonder why she was hidden underneath for a century.
She has Mona Lisa eyes that follow you if your standing on either the left or right of her. I think the picture gives off negative vibes..what do you think?


  1. I like the picture but she looks a little sad or maybe withdrawn??? Maybe she was just tired of sitting for the picture for so long!

  2. I love it. Not knowing the subject I can only guess that the artist captured her very soul. It would be fascinating to know the story behind the woman.

  3. She's scary! I'd put her up on Halloween with a little black paper mask on her eyes like I've seen people do! Yeah, I'm crazy...it helps.
