Lady with a string of pearls

Canvas
66 x 63 cm
Inv.nr. 42-1946, Cat.nr.54

In the past wrongly attributed to Pieter de Hoogh. Later a signature was discovered which proved it to be an Elinga.
The woman’s head used to be painted over but was (not quite successfully) restored in the beginning of the 20th c.
