C1790 Oil on Canvas Portrait of a Gentleman


In its Rococo frame, this oval oil on canvas portrait shows a gentleman with his own hair, powdered grey. Wigs were no longer a fashion essential by the 1790s. He is wearing a white linen stock tied in a nifty bow, and a black coat. The frame is 80 cm by 70 cm. The painting is in good condition but has "spiderweb" crazing to the surface, which our painting restorer may be able to fix or ameliorate.
