C1830 Biedermeier Hipster Gentleman Oil on Canvas Painting

$2,450.00


These portraits were anecdotally purchased some time ago at the Dorotheum, the large auction house in Vienna. Hence the portraits are likely to be Austro-Hungarian. We have separated the portraits as they are different in pose and can stand alone, although they are likely to be a marriage pair. The gilt wooden frames are 59 cm by 50 cm. This debonair gentleman sports a dashing ivory coloured top hat, typical of the period, and a fine moustache. This is an outdoor portrait, and the leather strap over the gentleman's shoulder probably supports a hunting gun.

 

I looked extensively or paintings exactly of this type and quality to buy in Paris all September, but would have had to pay at least this in Euros for so fine a portrait. These were bought locally.
