18th-Century German School, Portrait Of A Gentleman

A characterful mid-18th-century portrait of a stout old fellow with ruddy cheeks and a satisfied expression. Perhaps it’s a portrait to hang in the dining room.

The gentleman is wearing a green jacket over a dark waistcoat along with a white neckerchief.

It’s presented in a feigned oval and held within a good later frame.
