"Portrait Of A Comedian Empanaché, Oil On Canvas Early Eighteenth Century"Large portrait of a theater actor, probably commedia dell'arte.
It is an important oil on canvas dating from the first half of the 18th century, depicting a man in theater costume, wearing a feathered hat, a large red cape on a white checkered hemlock hemmed with blue, and a book in the hands.
perhaps he is also a writer of plays!
the face is rather round with a fine mustache and the look turned to the right, with a slight strabismus fixing the spectator.
a portrait very alive and full of entrein, droid and fun, full of life! Southern work. the canvas was re-quarried in the 19th century.
Nice frame in Spanish gilded wood.
a beautiful painting with a rare representation of a comedian in the heat of the action.
