Continental Portrait Of A Gentleman With A Black Bow Tie

Regular price £395.00

DESCRIPTION

A characterful half-length portrait of a handsome continental gentleman wearing a white shirt, dark jacket, and black bow tie.

It’s interesting to note the subtle changes in fashion that occurred throughout the 19th-century as these can often provide clues as to the date of a portrait.

For example, this particular gentleman is wearing his collars turned over at the tip, which is a style that originated in the 1870s. This, combined with the way that his jacket is worn partially open at the top, helps to give us an approximate date of 1880.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price. For those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish. We always try to source frames that are appropriate for the age of the painting but can also provide contemporary alternatives if you prefer. You only pay for the cost of the actual frame (usually £30 - £50) as we include the labour for free.
