19th-Century Portrait Study Of An Older Bearded Gentleman

19th-Century Portrait Study Of An Older Bearded Gentleman

A fascinating portrait study of an older bearded gentleman looking downwards. It feels like a lost old master unearthed from a private collection or discovered in a dusty attic.

It’s almost certainly a study given its unfinished nature and perhaps it was created in advance of a larger piece. It's an unusual decorative item that captures the imagination.

The portrait is housed within an ornate 20th-century foliate frame with worn gilding.

Overall size: 22” x 24½” / 56cm x 62cm
Year of creation: c. 1850
