The General

DESCRIPTION

A characterful little portrait of a French General in a smart black tunic and embroidered cap.

His cap is officially known as a kepi and it signifies his rank. Kepi patterns can range from simple designs through to elaborate dual band examples for senior officers. This particular version, with its two rows of ornate oak leaves and acorns, was worn by army corps commanders during, and just prior to, WWI.

The painting itself dates to around 1960 so perhaps it's a family member or a well-known figure. It’s signed in the bottom right and there’s another portrait on the reverse.

Year of creation c. 1953 - c. 1964
