RESERVED - European Portrait Of A Smart Young Gentleman
A fine mid-19th-century portrait of a smart young central European gentleman. He’s dressed in a highly fashionable outfit consisting of a pleated white shirt with upstanding collars, a black bow tie, and a black waistcoat and jacket.
Portraits of this standard were expensive to commission, so clearly this is either a self-made young man or he’s part of a wealthy family.
