Portrait Of Karl Hoffmann

Portrait Of Karl Hoffmann

A 19th-century three-quarter length portrait of the dashing Karl Hoffmann. He’s seated in what appears to be a wooded area with one arm resting on the foot of a tree.

With his well-tailored outfit and perfectly coiffured moustache, he carries the air of a distinguished country gentleman.

On his left, there’s a green hat that looks similar to a mariner’s cap - perhaps a clue as to his profession or interests.

The portrait is housed within a swept giltwood frame with foliate corner ornamentation. Dated on the reverse.
