Portrait Of A Gentleman In A Green Suit [Willy Fassbender]

DESCRIPTION

A characterful early 20th-century portrait, depicting a dapper gentleman in a green suit, by listed artist, Willy Fassbender (1873-1938).

We purchased the painting from a private seller in Switzerland who originally discovered it at a flea market in Zurich. Little is known about the artist, but it seems that he often painted well-known figures, such as the composer, Ludwig van Beethoven.

The identity of this particular chap has been lost over time but, with his smart bow tie, Homberg hat and coiffured moustache, perhaps there’s a touch of Poirot about him?

Signed and dated in the bottom right.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price. For those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish. We always try to source frames that are appropriate for the age of the painting but can also provide contemporary alternatives if you prefer. You only pay for the cost of the actual frame (usually £30 - £50) as we include the labour for free.
