Reserved - German School Portrait Of An Older Gentleman

Reserved - German School Portrait Of An Older Gentleman

A characterful early 20th-century portrait of an older gentleman in profile with a red necktie.

The use of light and shade is reminiscent of the way 17th-century old masters would use chiaroscuro to add drama. We love his expression and particularly the rogue eyebrow that’s twisting out of place.

He certainly has a fierce look to him.

Signed ‘E Kimelmann’ in the upper right.
