A fine late 19th-century portrait of a dashing young German officer in his parade uniform. It’s a sensitive portrayal, which is quite unusual for a military piece.

The officer’s hair is slicked back, probably with pomade, which was all the rage in Germany at the time.

The painting is housed within what appears to be its original frame.
