    Hello, I'm listing this picture to sell, but I'm at a loss at how to describe it and the frame. It's 13" by 15". Any ideas, thank you! DSC03915.JPG DSC03920.JPG DSC03922.JPG

    Some famous aristocratic beauty of the 18th century. We have some people who are extremely good at tracking them down, so you may get a more precise answer. Such prints were once a fad in home decor.

    The frame looks early 1900s - 1920s

    A Google Image search identifies your work as a 1786 portrait of Sophie Potocka by the French school after Kucharsky.

    Here she is in color.

    Thank you for taking the time to find that. I just thought it was a random picture. I'll look into that information tomorrow. Thanks again!

    Would you say then that this print and frame is around 100 years old.
