042230: 19TH C. OIL ON CANVAS, SEATED YOUNG MAN
19TH C. OIL ON CANVAS, 30" X 25", PORTRAIT OF A SEATED YOUNG MAN:Unsigned; gilt period frame. Probably European.
Very good quality. Under UV light in the unopened frame: turns somewhat green so an accurate and complete UV analysis is not possible, however there is c. 8-12% spotty overpainting showing including in the face and head, etc.; lined; much damage along the entire top of the painting going down about 2" with cracking, peeling (losses) and restoration of the paint (appears to have had water damage); overall very fine craquelure; original stretcher bars; period gilt molded gesso frame is as is with losses, cracks and restoration.
