Young Girl Holding an Orange

Oil on canvas, oval, 64 x 53 cm
Private collection

This painting would appear to represent a betrothal portrait of a young girl who is perhaps engaged, or of marriageable age, indicated by the garland of white flowers in her hair and the orange she holds - a symbol of love and marriage.
