"Portrait Of An Elegant, Signed And Dated 1844"Superb portrait of a full-length man of remarkable elegance in a gallery of paintings and sculpture. It is to be noticed on this portrait of amusing details, for example he wears a ring on the little finger of his right hand, a tie pin adorns his lavallière. We can also appreciate the perspective effect accentuated by the floor in tiles of different colors, or the source of light behind the figure, revealing the contours of an antique satue and the paintings hanging on the wall on the left of the painting. The painting is signed at the bottom right and dated 1844. The signature is difficult to read (see photos).
