The light, pastel like colors in this wonderful portrait of a fisherman sitting on the bow of his boat, complement the impressionist style of the artist. Notice the subject's one bare foot propped on a bucket, while he is holding a net with his left hand. The broad, loose brush strokes and areas of bare canvas almost gives this portrait the look of a sketch or study. The painting is unsigned and mounted in a gilt wood and gesso frame.
There are light abrasions to the frame as well as the bottom of the canvas and to the left and right vertical edges where the canvas meets the frame. Please take a moment to enlarge the photos and examine the details up close.
