Rectangular framed oil on canvas representing the caricature of a male character standing up and holding in his right hand a red fabric purse.
The character is brown, with a mustache and a small beard. He is dressed in a original way with a colored three-pieces suit composed of yellow pants, a blue frock coat on a red jacket and a large white collar shirt, the set is completed by a bow tie and a large black cap.
The representation of the character with a small size, a huge head, his look on us with his large smile, staring mockingly, is typical of the 19thcentury caricatures.
Signed «A.Gautier» in red letters bottom right, certainly for Armand Désiré Gautier (1825-1894).
Framed with a clear wooden box.
Work from the late 19th century.
