Eighteenth Century Portrait, Boy in Blue
Anonymous, Circa 1750
A handsome and agreeable lad within porthole format, mounted in carved period frame - SOLD

Antique Portrait of a Boy in Blue, Anonymous, Circa 1750, close up view

Handsome half-length portrait of an adolescent boy in a light blue jacket and waistcoat, with delicately rendered cotton cuffs and collar. His competently-painted hand holds a small book and the other is tucked into his waistcoat, giving him a mature and scholarly air. Children in the early to mid-eighteenth century were dressed and expected to behave as miniature adults, and education was a priority for middle and upper-class families. Literacy was necessary among the children of wealthy families, and that our young man’s family would commission a portrait of their son at such an early age shows fondness but also an expectation of greatness. Very minor restoration commensurate with age; re-stretched and lined.
(Frame: 35 by 31.5"; view: 27 by 23.5")

Antique Portrait of a Boy in Blue, Anonymous, Circa 1750, with ruler for scale
