Attractive late 1800s portrait, oil on canvas
Sourced from a dealer in Castres, this is a medium-sized portrait of a local French doctor painted in the late 1800s by a local artist. Beautifully executed, it is a highly decorative piece. There are some losses to the canvas and evidence on the back that most of these have been disguised with black paint added to the reverse so they cannot easily be seen when the picture is hung.
While in obvious shabby chic condition, the portrait retains substantial period charm and atmosphere, looking good in any room.
