19th-Century French School, Portrait Of A Boy

19th-Century French School, Portrait Of A Boy

A charming early to mid-19th-century portrait of a boy wearing a tan outfit with a white shirt. It’s unsigned but clearly by a well-trained hand.

We particularly love his little coat and pushed-over fringe.

The portrait is housed within a period frame.
