Danish School, Early 20th-Century Portrait Of A Man In A Turban

A wonderful early 20th-century oil on canvas depicting a gentleman wearing a green jacket and waistcoat with a turban and blue neckerchief.

It’s been painted with sweeping broad marks, an impressionistic touch, and plenty of bravura. The artist has conveyed a sense of stoicism and pride with this gentleman - which is further enhanced by the profile perspective.

It’s signed in the top left and was initially considered a work by Danish artist, Hugo Vilfred Petersen (1870-1959).

Medium: Oil on canvas
Overall size: 16½” x 20½” / 42cm x 52cm
