This is a lovely oil painting that features a refined man looking off to the side with a watery landscape receding behind him into a sunset. It is dark and dramatic but not brooding and I wonder if the figure might be a ships captain with the water in the background and the stone wall he is set against.
It is about life size and the face is skillfully done and it is in wonderful vintage condition with a surface craquelure and simple gold leaf hardwood frame. Oil on canvas, housed in a gilt frame.
Unsigned; 29.25 x 24 in. (sight), 35.75 x 30.75 in.
