This interesting and touching portrait has been painted in 1915 during the first World War on a piece of vellum.
I think the painter took advantage of a moment of pause between the fights to represent one of his comrades,smiling and smoking his pipe.
The man is wearing the Scottish cap and a military shirt.
The painting is in good condition,except a visible hole in the vellum and some light brown spots at the bottom behind the cardboard.
The wooden frame is painted in brown.A part of the paint is hidden under the cardboard.
Frame = about 13’’ x 11’’ ( 33 x 27cm )
Interior of the frame = 10’’ x 7,7 inches ( 25,3 x 19,5cm )
Portrait = 8,6 inches x 6’’ ( 21,8 x 15,7cm )
Frame thickness = 1,06 inches ( 2,7cm )
