British male portrait, 18th century
Sold by Items of Value, Inc
This painting, oil on canvas, from the late 18th century, shows an older Caucasian male with curly gray hair, wearing a white sash tied in a bow, plus jacket. He is sitting in a mahogany open arm chair having straight horizontal back crest and straight arm, covered in brass-buttoned red leather or velvet. The painting is approximately 30"h x 25"w, of near photographic quality and detail, in a period molded goldtone gessoed wood frame typical of that time, 39"h x 34"w. There are two canvas patches in back. A paper tag on the back states "Colonel Sandarmae / Kern Church / Monmouthshire England". Unfortunately, we have not uncovered any biodata on such a person. Monmouthshire is located in southeast Wales. The painting is dirty but in good condition. The frame exhibits deterioration with gesso losses predominantly along the foredge band.
