Mid 20th-Century Portrait Of A Man & Dove

Mid 20th-Century Portrait Of A Man & Dove

An intriguing mid-20th-century portrait of a man holding a book with a dove on his left shoulder. It dates to 1945 so perhaps the dove is a symbolic reference to peace following the end of World War II.

We love the unusual atmosphere in this expressive piece and it would make an interesting talking point.

The portrait is monogrammed in the lower left and housed within a frame that’s probably the original.
