Information

A charming 18th Century English antique County House portrait of a gentleman offered in "attic found" condition.

Sourced from Suffolk, England.

Whilst the sitter and artist are unknown, the style has been clearly influenced by Suffolk-born artist Thomas Gainsborough.

Thomas Gainsborough FRSA (14 May 1727 (baptised) – 2 August 1788) was an English portrait and landscape painter, draughtsman, and printmaker. Along with his bitter rival Sir Joshua Reynolds, he is considered one of the most important British portrait artists of the second half of the 18th century. He painted quickly, and the works of his maturity are characterised by a light palette and easy strokes. Despite being a prolific portrait painter, Gainsborough gained greater satisfaction from his landscapes. He is credited (with Richard Wilson) as the originator of the 18th-century British landscape school. Gainsborough was a founding member of the Royal Academy.

Presented in its original gilt gesso frame.

Condition - in untouched condition - some surface dirt and wear to the paint surface.  Minor losses are apparent to the frame. If you are looking for a portrait with originality then this is the one for the discerning collector.
