Measurements: CANVAS: 12" x 16" - WITH FRAME: 16" x 20"
Period frame; relined canvas.
Unsigned, although I have not had the painting out of the frame.
Dating to the mid 1800's - showing an English barrister in his robe of office, wearing the required wig.
Lovely painted detail on the wig and lace insert (fichu?)
In very good condition except for two scuffs visible on the robe and one chip to the background near the frame edge.
The frame has a small chip to the gold leaf at the upper left hand corner.
