Availability: In stock
Possibly French in origin, a presentation with familiar aspects to the works of Auguste Edouart (1789-1861), Joseph Wright (1756 – 1793), and Ezra Wood, known as the Puffy Sleeve Artist and active between in the early 1830s. This watercolor painting on oval cut paper displays a younger gentleman with longer ruffled hair dressed in formal attire with gold painted highlights and a white, unpainted ruffled shirt with affable charm. A perfect addition to one’s wall decor in the early American, colonial interior, or farmhouse decor style, or for collectors of silhouette paintings or early American folk art.
