English School Regency Period Portrait Of A Gentleman

English School Regency Period Portrait Of A Gentleman

This early 19th-century watercolour depicts a handsome young gentleman wearing a coat, white shirt and cravat. He’s standing before a tree with foliage - perhaps on his estate.

During the Regency period, men were expected to don a coat, waistcoat, and breeches (or pantaloons). Here, the gentleman appears to be wearing a frock coat, which came to the fore in around 1815 and tended to be worn as informal daywear.

Held within a gilt frame and glazed.
