C1876 Oil on Board Portrait of Bearded Gentleman


The later frame is 67 cm by 82 cm. The finely painted oil portrait is on Inscribed on the reverse: "J. Gildar.  1876". I don't know if this is the artist or the sitter. The date agrees with the costume, particularly the jacket being buttoned on the top button only. There is a gold watch chain visible and the collar is similar to modern soft, turn down examples. The collar and hairstyle could easily be from 2020.
