19th-Century Swedish School, Portrait Of A Gentleman

A fine mid-19th-century portrait of a dapper gentleman wearing a black coat, white shirt with upstanding collars, and a large black bow tie. His hair is slightly dishevelled as per the fashion of the day and he’s dressed to impress.

The portrait is unsigned but clearly by a well-trained hand. It’s housed within a later gilded frame.
