Large 19th C. British School Gentleman Portrait by L. Peters
This spectacular 19th century oil on canvas of a distinguished gentleman has graced my mantle for many years now. Done by a British school artist and dates to 1871. The gentleman looks like a physician or scholar, doesn't he?
The painting is wonderfully executed and rests in a gilt wood frame. The frame measures 38-1/2" tall by 31-1/2" wide and 1-1/2" deep.
It is on overall good condition and has some areas of paint loss as noted in the photos. It is currently in the process of being restored, so there will be significant delay in shipping. Additionally, there is an extraordinary, breathtaking antique carved frame that is not shown in the photos. It goes over the small gold frame in the photos. That is also being restored. So the price of the painting reflects the restoration of both the painting and other frames.
A truly magnificent painting!
