Antique Italian School Oil Painting on Board Portrait of an Old Man Smoking a Wood Pipe
Antique Italian School Oil Painting on Board Portrait of an Elderly Man with Pipe. This is a competently executed painting with lots of detail, a realist style portrait. The elderly gentleman is quietly smoking his old wooden pipe, dressed in a warm mustard brown jacket with a blue neckerchief, and a most unusual dark brown hat/berret. His face is wonderfully lined and weathered - full of character.
