19th-Century Austrian School, Portrait Of A Gentleman

A characterful 19th-century Austrian school portrait of a gentleman. He’s wearing a black coat over a yellow waistcoat with a white shirt a black necktie. His style fits broadly with the fashion of the mid-19th-century.

We particularly love the craquelure, which seems to add to its overall timeworn appearance.
