Oil Portrait

Something about portraits done in oil just capture my attention.  I found this at an antique store in Pomona last weekend for $25.  The framing alone would cost that much but this painting of a woman, who looks between 20 and 30 years of age is very striking.  There is the all-black top that she is wearing and that sliver of a red chair on her back just projects a certain melancholy about her face.  What was she thinking at the time she sat?
