About the Item: An oil portrait of a young woman painted on wood. Unsigned and undated, marked "W. Allston" on verso of board. This painting is attributed to the American Romantic painter and poet Washington Allston. Note that the portrait was originally created to be placed in an oval frame, as was popular in the early 19th century. For this reason, the artist did not continue the image into the corners of the wooden surface, but instead painted the corners a neutral color.
