Portrait Of A Continental Gentleman

Portrait Of A Continental Gentleman

This early 19th-century portrait of a dapper gentleman captures his characterful expression particularly well. He’s dressed smartly in a frock coat with a white shirt and black necktie. While his hair is curled at the sides according to the style of the day.

We purchased the painting in the UK but it’s probably continental due to its size (which is metric rather than imperial).
