ANTIQUE NUMBER SA1073106: Late 17th-century French School, Portrait Of A Young Nobleman - Antique Oil Painting

Late 17th-century French School, Portrait Of A Young Nobleman - Antique Oil Painting

£3,195    $4,149    €3,794
This splendid late 17th-century French school oil painting depicts a young nobleman standing somewhat haughtily before a landscape.
 
Dressed in a sumptuous blue velvet cloak, white lace cravat, and embroidered waistcoat, one can imagine that he’s the image of his father. It’s an audacious display of decadence and wealth. The view beyond could be a reference to the estate he’s due to inherit.
 
Produced during the reign of King Louis XIV, extravagant French fashion was influenced by a flourishing textile trade. France had transformed fashion into a thriving industry and copious designers were emerging with new ideas and trends. It’s interesting to consider how this young man felt, with his left arm nonchalantly draped over the classical architecture.
