Mid century portrait by Belgian artist Charles Melikoff , who painted a lot in Africa between 1930 -1950 and also painted a variety of subjects from nudes to still life in Paris and Brussels.

He may have been commissioned to paint this for a local family which would suggest it was after he came back from the Congo. The lady looks well dressed with a soft face.
