"Laetizia The Temptress" Oil on Canvas

"Laetizia The Temptress" Oil on Canvas, Mid 19th Century, by N. Hillan. This exquisite portrait of a young Italian Woman, "Laetizia, The Temptress", is both compelling and alluring. Her face is a combination of knowing and innocence...her gentle, yet piercing blue eyes bore right inside the viewer. Her wavy chestnut hair is adorned with, with a gypsy-like scarf, yet her Italian Renaissance Jewellry and sumptuous , exotic dress, nonchalantly falling from her shoulders, delivers an exuberant air of nobility and wealth.

The brush-work is detailed and clever: it is in very good order. There is, however, a slight convex curve in the canvas, which is only visible, when the painting is lying flat.

Callie Hollenden has specialised in antiques and decorative items for thirty years.  Her smart, sophisticated country house and town house interiors mirror her exacting standards and uncompromising quality.

She firmly believes a range of styles and eras can comfortably co exist.  A 17th century tapestry is easily displayed in the same setting as a 20th century lucite dining table.

A passion for collecting began from an early age: "I never know what I'm going to find and always keep an open mind.  I've bought some exquisite, wonderful and wacky items over the years."

She has an interesting selection of 17th, 18th and 19th century painted furniture, fruitwood furniture, mirrors, lighting, works of art and objects extraordinaire.
