    Description

    Attributed to Jean-François de Troy (French, 1679-1752)
    A Portrait of a Gentleman, Half-length, Wearing a Brown Velvet Jacket
    Oil on canvas, in a feigned oval
    30 x 25 inches (76.2 x 63.5 cm)
    Bears indistinct inscription lower right on feigned oval

    PROPERTY FROM A PRIVATE AMERICAN COLLECTION



    Condition Report*: Lined canvas; painted oval is likely a later addition; there appears to be craquelure throughout with a few tiny flakes of loss, most notably a larger flake to the left of figure's face; slight bowing to canvas in figure's face; under UV exam, there appears to be inpainting in background as well as several spots of inpanting in figure's jacket; a small dot of inpainting in figure's chin and another in hair as well as in pupils; otherwise, a discolored varnish layer makes this painting difficult to read. Framed Dimensions 36 X 31 Inches
