Description
A late 19th-century portrait of a gentleman by German artist, Vitus Reisacher (1851-1913). Reisacher was an interesting artist as he also trained in photography and had a studio in Munich. It seems that he specialised in wedding portraits and would paint (or photograph) couples prior to their nuptials. This could explain why the gentleman here is looking directly at us with his body square on to the easel. It’s possible that the painting was based on an earlier photograph rather than painted from life. He certainly has a look to him. Signed and dated in the lower right. Medium: Oil on canvas Overall size: 19” x 23½” / 48cm x 60cm Year of creation: 1898 Provenance: Germany
