"Young Romantic Boy With Decoration, From 1849"Beautiful romantic oval portrait dated 1849 and representing a young boy named Ramon Romani and painted at the age of 13.
the portrait is charming and painted on metal, probably a zinc plate. annotations on the back. the portrait is very well treated as the clothes, the young boy wears a decoration on the reverse of his jacket.
frame with oval view of the original restoration period, very acceptable despite a few small gaps.
painting on zinc remains rather unusual, the irregularities of the metal results in indirect light in surface differences, however it is not repainted.
the whole is charming and very decorative.
a pretty portrait of a young man.
