The Old Portrait by Hume Nisbet

“The bust and head of a young woman of uncertain age,  merged within a gloom of rich accessories painted as only a master hand can paint who is above asserting his knowledge, and who has learnt to cover his technique.  It was as perfect and natural in its sombre yet quiet dignity as if it had come from the brush of Moroni.”
