Portrait Of A Gentleman With A Yellow Waistcoat
A small turn of the century oil on canvas depicting a continental gentleman dressed in a yellow waistcoat, frock coat, shirt and blue tie.
Towards the end of the 19th-century, fashionable gentleman often turned their shirt collars down and wore a knotted tie style. For many decades previously, collars had been worn up and accompanied by a cravat or necktie.
Also around this time, hair tended to be cut short with a side parting, while moustaches were de rigueur.
