Portrait. Watercolor on paper.
In vintage frame. It represents a man with a neat mustache and beard hairstyle.
A hat resting on the Louis Philippe-style coffee table with carved legs, a cane with an elegant handle and a pocket watch chain that we see coming down from the vest, give us an image of a wealthy gentleman from the second half of the 19th century.
Disassembling the painting from the frame we find a name and a date: H A Laissemet 1881. Probably the name is an attribution hypothesis of the previous owners.
The watercolor is in perfect condition. The frame is to be restored.
Diameter: 15,5 cm
