"Portrait of a Young Man, Possibly the Artist Gainsborough Dupont"

oil on canvas
Presented in an antique giltwood frame with oval aperture.
25" x 20", framed 30" x 25"

Provenance: Estate of Dr. Carroll Ball, Jackson, Mississippi.

Notes: The sitter of the portrait offered here bears a striking resemblance to that of the ca. 1770 "Portrait of Gainsborough Dupont" by Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788) of his young nephew. This earlier portrait, which is now conserved at the Tate Britain, is of a younger, less somberly attired gentleman.


Canvas cleaned and relined, taped along the edges; craquelure pattern visible; areas of inpainting center/lower right (jacket); center right (back of collar) and in the background (upper right and left and lower left) and upper center (his forehead, cheek, nose and chin). Frame with surface marks, nicks and abrasions; losses along edges and in corners.
