A late-19th-century French school portrait of a gentleman wearing a dark coat, white shirt and black bow tie. He carries an air of a stoic hard-working character that’s endured a turbulent life.
His style fits alongside other portraits from the 1880s when collars were stiff and bow ties were popular. He’s probably wearing a waistcoat under his suit jacket and may also carry a pocket watch.
The portrait is housed within a beautiful swept frame with foliate ornamentation that’s probably the original.
