A beautiful faded and worn, oil on canvas portrait of a young gentleman. Artist and date unknown but we suspect it is from the late 19th Century.
We fell in love with the lovely dark tones of this piece, it's elegant subject and it's genuine faded and rustic feel. This piece is in a real vintage condition; the paint has dried and cracked over the years and is consequently quite fragile. There are small patches missing across the painting, particularly at the bottom, and tiny fragments of paint have flaked away across the painting. There is a small whole towards the top and a tear at the bottom of the canvas which is approx 5cm long. For us these imperfections tell us some of this painting's story and simply add to it's beauty.
