This 7" W x 11.74" H panting, a 19th-century silhouette portrait painting on paper, hail from John Derian's thoughtfully curated collection of vintage art. The silhouette is signed by the artist and housed in a gilded wood frame. Before the widespread use of photography in the mid-1800s, silhouette portraiture, involving the painting or cutting of profiles, was a popular method for creating images of oneself or family members.
