Oil Painting of a Gentleman | Large 19th Century Victorian Portrait

19TH Century Portrait of a Gentleman
By Florence A. Ross (1870-1949)
RHA (Royal Hibernian Academy)
Framed 30″x36″(canvas approximately 23 1/2″x 29 1/4″)
Oil on Canvas
Large Portrait
SOLD
Offering a large oil painting of a Victorian gentleman. The painting is of Irish origin and was painted by a very skilled artist. The details are incredibly well executed and the use of shadows, light and proportions make the portrait exceptionally lifelike. The portrait is almost full scale, hence the painting is fairly large. It’s surrounded by a fine looking vintage frame, with a strong wire on the back.
The letters RHA appear before the artists signature.  RHA is a Dublin based institution, founded in 1823.  The institution was originally chartered by 30 Irish artists to promote the arts.  Florence A. Ross had attended the RHA.
The painting has some distress and repairs to the skin on the forehead and cheek. There are two small torn areas on the left side and some very small areas of missing paint. The canvas is tightly stretched and well secured. I can imagine the portrait rested above a fireplace for many years, which explains the missing paint.
