Remarkable 17th Century Continental School Portrait Oil Painting of a Young Noble Male or Heir Apparent | This early 17th Century portrait is an oil painting on canvas in the style of the 17th century continental school | The young noble male is dressed in early 17th Century (western European attire) noble attire, including the broad lace collar (successor to the 16th Century ruff collar). The boy appears to be wearing a sleeveless jerkin, a short close-fitting jacket, made usually of leather, and often without sleeves, worn over the doublet in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The subject is also wearing a cloak or cape, a style worn chiefly by nobles. The boys doublet lining is made of matching fabric as the cape, indicating that the attire is in the fashion of the 1630s. Finally, the boys hairstyle points to a period spanning 1630 - 1650, prior to the advent of the wig. The overall style of clothing and hairstyle suggests that the subject could be English, French or Dutch | The Painting is in good antique condition, canvas has been relined, with mild craquelure | Housed in a period gold gilded gesso wood frame | Approx. Measurements: Canvas 18.75" H x 14.5" W; Frame 24.5" H x 19.75" W.
