Object Description
Framed portrait of a female dressed in traditional costume of a white head scarf, red dress with gold emboridery and a blue underskirt with a white lace ruffle at the bottom. She has white stockings and red shoes with blue details. The background is an exterior scene blue and brown at her feet and mountains in the background under a blue sky. The bottom right hand corner of the print says "Salamis" in English and Greek. The matting for the portrait is a white in a gold painted frame. There is also a thin green lining on the frame.
Donated by George T Anton. This print comes from the book "Hellenic National Costumes" by Hadzimichali, Angeliki and Nicolas Sperling. The prints were done by miniature artist Sperling. The book had multiple pressings (1948, 1954). Ultimately there were two volumes and a supplement with 111 plates total. The original unframed, unmatted prints were 8 1/2" X 11 5/8".
