At Brave, we track down decorative antique and vintage art that’s hard to ignore - from characterful old portraits through to beautiful historic landscapes. There are just the two of us behind the scenes - Andy and Liv. Andy takes care of the buying and Liv looks after the presentation. We both believe that art has such an important role to play in all of our lives, yet the art world can often feel exclusive and closed off to many of us. So in our own small way we’re trying to bring you the experience of a top City gallery, while also helping to make art more accessible for everyone. If you have any questions at all, do get in touch as we're always happy to share our research and further details regarding provenance.

Description

An enigmatic early 20th-century portrait of a smartly-dressed Scandinavian gentleman.

The figure is quite dark so it’s tricky to examine his headwear closely, but it appears that he’s wearing a ‘pork pie’ hat atop a thick mass of wavy black hair. The pork pie hat began life around 1830 but was only generally worn by women. But in the 1920s, thanks to Buster Keaton, men also began donning these stylish headpieces.

The portrait is housed within an appropriate later frame.
