A beautiful faded and worn, oil on unframed canvas portrait of an old gentleman. The painting is signed and dated to 1913 and from the stamps on the back of the canvas, was probably painted in the UK and potentially in London.
We fell in love with the lovely dark tones of this piece, it’s elegant subject and its genuine, faded and rustic feel. This piece is in real vintage condition; the paint has dried and cracked over the years and has worn away in a few small areas. There is a rip to the top left of the sitter’s head (as you look at the painting) and a small patch of something a little rough has clearly got stuck on the canvas at some point in it’s life - you can see this on the sitter’s right lapel. For us, these imperfections tell us some of this painting’s story and simply add to it’s beauty.
