A fine mid-19th-century portrait of a young gentleman wearing a double-breasted frock coat with a white shirt and dark blue cravat. It’s unsigned but clearly by a very accomplished academy-trained artist.

The details are exquisite, particularly around the face, and he carries an air of an upstanding young man.

The portrait is housed within a mid-19th-century frame that could be the original.
