Frederick Leighton - Head of a Girl wearing a Wreath

oil on canvas laid down on board
10 x 7"
originally in the Queen's (Victoria) collection but was first sold in 1974 (and then at Christie's in 1992).
date painted is not known but it was in the Queen's collection by 1906 at least
It seems to have been presented to Queen Victoria by the artist himself
