Figure In The Shadows
An 18th-century oil on panel depicting a dark figure wearing a brown jacket, white scarf, and headband. It feels a little reminiscent of the style of Rembrandt’s portraiture, so perhaps the artist was a follower.
The panel itself is quite basic and seems to be hand-bevelled. It consists of two pieces of wood that have been glued together - probably prior to painting.
