19th-Century German School, Portrait Of A Huntsman

19th-Century German School, Portrait Of A Huntsman

A charming mid-19th-century portrait of a bearded gentleman wearing a large hat and overcoat. His outfit is more informal than you typically find in 19th-century portraits of gentlemen and it’s interesting to consider why he chose to wear it.

It feels more akin to outfits worn while hunting, so maybe he was a keen huntsman or a gamekeeper for a large country house.

The portrait is housed within a later frame.

Overall size: 24” x 31” / 62cm x 79cm
