PORTRAIT OF A MAN SEATED IN A RED UPHOLSTERED ARMCHAIR

PORTRAIT OF A MAN SEATED IN A RED UPHOLSTERED ARMCHAIR

#3026

Portrait of a man on ivory seated in a red upholstered armchair.  The proportions of the sitter to the space in which he is painted more resembles that of a full-size portrait than a miniature.  Another spacial oddity of the work is the exaggerated size of his hand which gives the image a more folky character. c.1845.
