Danish School c1775 Portrait of a Gentleman.

An imposing portrait of a Danish gentleman dating to the last quarter of the 18th century. This dapper gentleman wears a blue coat trimmed with fur, stylish embroidered waistcoat, and the ensemble is topped off with a powdered grey wig.

This could be a portrait of Johan Frederik Classen (1725-1792), who was a Danish-Norwegian industrialist, major general, landowner and founder of Det Classenske Fideicommis. There is a strong resemblance both sharing a very distinctive nose.
