Original 19th C French Oil Portrait by T Clavel


This is an original oil portrait of a gentleman by French artist T Clavel, dated 1869. The painting is signed in red paint toward the middle lower left of painting. I was unable to find any information on the artist, however. The gentleman looks like a banker or of high importance in a judiciary capacity; strictly my opinion. He has on a very nice suite with a purple vest under his suite jacket with gold detail on the button of his shirt.

The painting itself has noted holes throughout. The gentleman has a hole in his forehead which might lead one to ponder this paintings long history; maybe the gentleman’s history as well 😉 . Otherwise, the painting looks to have a good restoration completed at some point and is stretched on newer wood.

Measures: 23.8” x 29”
