19th Century Portrait of a French Officer, Oil on Canvas
Secure Payments By
A characterful 19th-century portrait of a French officer with a determined expression. Clearly he means business. I wonder how the artist arrived at the point whereby they decided to give this gentleman such a steely look? Perhaps they painted exactly what they saw or did the officer insist upon it? If you can share any information relating to the uniform, do let us know. Medium: Oil on canvas Overall size: 20” x 24½” / 51cm x 62cm Year of creation: c. 1860 Provenance: France
