19th-Century Portrait Of A Young Gentleman

A charming mid-19th-century portrait of a young gentleman wearing a black coat, white shirt and black necktie. In the 1860s, gentleman often styled their hair into a moderate wave and kept their side whiskers long. As you can see here, this dapper young gentleman is keeping up with the latest fashion.

It’s also interesting to note the books on the table to his left. These are probably a reference to his academic prowess.

The portrait is housed within a later frame.
