Portrait of a General Officer circa 1830`s
A well executed oil on canvass English school half length potrait of a General officer. We can acurately identify that the individual is a full general as a result of his buttons being equally spaced rather than in pairs or three`s as would be regulation for a Major General or Lt General.
His is presumably sitting as his bicorn hat with white over red feather plume is visible over his right shoulder.
The picture conforms to the standard 27x25 inch format and is mounted in a modern gilt frame that is in keeping with the picture. There is no evidence of any repairs or damage to the canvass itself although some slight blistering is visible on his lower right hand breast where the oils have reacted slightly with the canvass as a result of climatic conditions.
None the less a very pleasing portrait that is sensibly priced.
