"'bodyguard Of The King, Around 1720' - Sanguine Early Nineteenth"Beautiful representation in 'blood ink' of a King's soldier in bivouac on the Grand Place of Antwerp (Belgium).
The drawing line is fine and mastered, in both proportions and contrasts.
Set in a Louis XVI glazed frame.
Regarding the subject, it is more specifically a King's Bodyguard recognizable to his hussar, his gloves, and his tricorn decorated with ribbon.
The Grand Place of Antwerp is clearly identifiable by its roofs, facades and statues that adorn it.
