This is a beautiful portrait painting of a lovely young woman. It is painted on canvas panel, and I believe it to be oil.

This painting is signed Alicia Fiene in the upper-left corner. Alicia (Wiencek) Fiene (1918-1961) was a portrait and mural painter. Most interesting is that she was the assistant and second wife of well-known artist, Ernest Fiene (1894-1965). She married Ernest in 1945. One of Alicia (Wiencek) Fiene’s works is a mural for the post office in Mooresville, NC. She was commissioned to do the mural as part of the WPA (Works Progress Administration) project of the 1930s. Ernest Fiene is best known for his murals, landscapes, and cityscapes, particularly of New York City.

Including the frame, this painting measures 19.5 inches high and 15.5 inches long. The canvas panel measures 16 inches high and 12 inches long. Please refer to the photos to evaluate condition of painting and frame. As you can see, the frame has damage. Zoom for larger views.

The last photo is a painting of Alicia Fiene by Ernest Fiene that I found on a website that has an excellent chronology of Ernest Fiene’s life. The painting is titled Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow (1946) and depicts Alicia pregnant with their first child. A portrait of Ernest Fiene’s mother hangs on the wall.

A wonderful and very charming portrait painting by a known artist for your collection.
