Josef Rolletschek, Portrait Of A Gentleman With A Walrus Moustache

DESCRIPTION

A fine early 20th century portrait of a gentleman with a bushy walrus moustache, dark suit, white shirt, and green tie.

He's also wearing an interesting pair of armless ‘c-bridge’ pince-nez spectacles which, as the name suggests, feature a flexible c-shaped bridge to hold them in place. This style of eyewear was popular among those who could afford it and one of the most well-known owners was the 26th President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt.

The artist, Josef Rolletschek (1859-1934), was an Austrian portrait painter that studied at the Academy of Fine Arts, Prague, and the Grand Ducal Saxon School of Arts in Weimar. This particular work is signed and dated in the lower 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.
