Portrait of a Gentleman


oil on panel

panel: 25 3/4 by 18 1/2 in.; 65.4 by 47 cm.

framed: 33 3/4 by 26 3/4 in.; 85.7 by 67.9 cm.

The panel is flat and consists of a single plank with a very slight convex bow. A chip of the panel is lost at the lower left corner but it does not affect the portrait. The image reads well beneath the varnish, which is uneven and sticky in a few areas visible under raking light. Under UV inspection, scattered retouching is visible throughout the background, as well as some cosmetic retouching to the man's nose and forehead and 2 diagonal lines of repair at the lower right corner. Overall the restoration does not profoundly affect the modeling and clothing. Offered in a decoratively carved ebonized wood frame.
