Portrait Of A Leathery Cowboy

Portrait Of A Leathery Cowboy

An unusual French portrait of a leathery-skinned gentleman wearing a soft-brimmed hat. He feels like he should be in a Western movie as a maverick gunslinger - rolling into town and getting thrown out of a bar.

The top of the portrait has some wear that makes it seem as if his hat has a bullet hole through it. And the overall aged appearance adds another dimension to the character of the piece.

At certain angles, you can barely see him and it’s an interesting surprise when he finally comes into view.

Certainly a talking point.
