Object description :

"Self-portrait In Chiaroscuro Mid 18th Century Circa 1770-1780."
Self-portrait in chiaroscuro of a painter of lights, oil on canvas from the second half of the 18th century French. Beautiful intimate self-portrait of a young painter in the soft twilight of his studio, he is dressed in a simple brown frock coat with a high collar, revealing a thin green waistcoat, which is more fitting in contrast with his white shirt tied with a lace tie . This striking contrast is magnified by a cold light, confining it a soft sensation of purity and freshness. Yet his haughty, theatrical port combined with this gloomy gaze gives the impression that it already fascinates an audience that is however most unreal. From the front, halfway up the legs, treated in chiaroscuro, he is there, in the foreground, positioned in front of his easel, brush with one hand and sketch with the other. It seems to emerge in the light, a light which gives it a clear perspective, thereby accentuating the illusion of volume. Dimensions: Frame width 101cm, height 123.5cm. Frame 83cm wide and 105cm high. Use and maintenance restorations such as relining on the key frame and cleaning. It should be notedmodern frame is of felt invoice.
