It is signed on the back: R.Gavin RSA with a further inscription which is difficult to decipher.
It features a very nostalgic portrait of a peasant girl standing by a wooden fence.
Her clothes looks rather poor and she has got a very sad look in her eyes, maybe she was saying good bye to her loved ones and decided to watch them until they disappeared over the horizon.
After closer inspection one can see how skillful the artist was to capture all those feelings of sadness and loss on the canvas.
There is an ink stamp on verso "John D Smith Carver & Gilder, 33 West Register St Edinburgh", he was an established carver and gilder.
In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation of condition.
