Collection particulière du Sud de la France.

Executed with a skilled, sure hand and a very lively brushstroke, this painting portrays an aristocratic young man, perhaps fifteen years old, wearing a voluminous red coat. He stands on the terrace of what appears to be a palace, overlooking a town that is presumably imaginary, but painted with energy and verve, recalling some examples of northern Italian or Venetian landscapes painted in the 1700s.


This ambitious portrait, whose quality is remarkable, was very probably painted by an artist in northern Italy at the turn of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. It is particularly close to the work of Jacob Ferdinand Voet (1639-1689).

Exécuté d’une main sûre et habile, avec une grande vivacité dans le traitement du pinceau, le tableau présente un jeune gentilhomme d’une quinzaine d’années, en grand habit rouge, sur le perron de ce qui semble être un palais surplombant une ville qu’il faut croire d’invention, mais brossée avec vigueur et fougue, rappelant quelques exemples de paysages peints d’Italie du Nord ou de Venise des années 1700.


D’une remarquable qualité, très probablement peint par un artiste d’Italie du Nord au tournant des XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles, cet ambitieux portrait se rapproche singulièrement de l’art de Jacob Ferdinand Voet (1639-1689).
