Very beautiful pastel on a sheet of blue paper mounted on canvas representing a gentleman with a powdered headdress with windings held by a ponytail.
He is dressed in a silk waistcoat embroidered with gold and a blue velvet jacket.
Very good condition, very fresh colors, gilt oak wood frame, blown glass and original back cardboard.
French school from the Louis XV period around 1760.

Our opinion :
With his "hammerhead ponytail" hairstyle, his precious embroidered clothes and his opulent posture, our gentleman represents the most perfect expression of men's fashion under the reign of Louis XV.
From the growing beard to the texture of the clothes, our pastel artist has been able to highlight the smallest details to give us a very successful portrait.
