Portrait of a Gentleman

Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description Waist-length, three-quarters to right portrait of a man, with eyes towards the viewer. The sitter has white hair worn long over the ears, and wears a dark blue coat, white vest and white stock. The plait of hair on the back, surrounded a blue enamel field, is light brown. Since the sitter is shown with powdered hair, this perhaps belongs to another person.
