Gentleman in oil
**** FREE DELIVERY **** (UK mainland only)
This handsome portrait of a gentleman is painted in oils on board with a lacquer applied over the top. It is not signed or dated but appears to be Victorian. We don’t know who the sitter is…though he does look rather official. Original portraits like this are becoming more difficult to find as the demand for them grows. This one looks an old family relic with its rather dark, muted colours and slightly battered appearance. The board has scratches, dents and chips which add all the more to its character. This would look amazing juxtaposed with modern prints and typography.
