A primitive folk styled antique oil painting of a gentleman. It was found in upper New England and is either American or early Canadian. The surface is typical of a painting from the early 1800s. It has one small paint chip on the forehead and a few spot at the bottom corner. The painting has a cracked surface, but the paint appears well secured. It’s a bit dark and has a very old varnish on the surface. The painting was carefully cleaned recently.

A lovely small oil painting created in Massachusetts and framed by, Meekins, Packard & Wheat, Inc., of Springfield, MA. The backing paper shows the label of the long gone department store, which was once very prominent in Western Massachusetts. The frame itself is rather delicate and has some corner damage. This happens to be common with old gilded plaster frames.
The details and composition are charming and the artist was certainly trained. The painting certainly shows a great deal of Realism in technique. No signature is present, so the artist is unknown.
