Antique Oil on Canvas Painting of a Young AristocratReturn to Paintings

This late 18th or early 19th century oil painting of a young aristocrat in period dress has an endearing naive quality. The painting is faded with significant craquelure and paint loss; the canvas is not stretched but tacked to back of the gold painted wood frame. We have chosen to not restore it as these age related aspects add to the naivete of the painting and have left the question of restoration preference to the buyer. Please take a moment to enlarge the photos and examine the details up close.
