A fine late 19th-century portrait of a gentleman attributed to Austrian painter, Ernst Nowak (1853-1919).
He’s wearing his collars stiff and high, as per the fashion of the 1880s, and sports a carefully waxed moustache.
Nowak painted this early in his career and he’s predominantly known for his religious scenes, genre scenes and portraits. He was taught by Carl Wurzinger (1817-1883) and August Eisenmenger (1830-1907) at the Vienna Academy. Several of his works are held in museums.
The portrait is signed (an early signature) on the right and housed within an elaborate period frame.
