This original old oil painting on heavy canvas measures 25 inches by 30 inches (image only) and 30 x 36 inches framed .

It is unsigned.

It is in excellent condition, with an overall crackle to the surface as should be expected from a painting between 180-220 years old .

Portraits of this type were very expensive at the time, so this would have been a wealthy or important person of the period.

The level of detail in the face is outstanding, so this was very likely painted by an accomplished artist, unlike the numerous folk artist painters who produced the two dimensional portraits so collectible (and expensive) today.
