Ciehulski és Wargha, Maros Vásárhely (Târgu-Mureș / Neumarkt am Mieresch), ca. 1874-1880
entry number: cdv.2010.04

Portrait of an unidentified young lady from Marosvásárhely. This local beauty`s attire slightly bypasses the bourgeois sobriety of the 1870s, so I`m imagining she isn`t a wealthy Marosvásárhely merchant`s daughter. Might she be an elegant noblewoman, or perhaps an actress or singer?
