This is an extremely intense and detailed antique oil. I wish you could see how correctly the hand holding the pipe is; the wisps of smoke in the air; and especially the intensity of this Russian man. Photos do not do justice to this incredible painting.
Size: 6 1/4" by 9 3/4".
Marks: Signed in pencil verso "J.Eziz Nevlud 1867".
Condition: Fair to Good Condition. The board has a crack. See photos.
Please note that the physical colours of this item may vary from the pictures in the listing, given the quality of the camera, the lighting and the background used.
The overall condition is as you would expect from an object of substantial age that has been displayed/handled/used, usually over the lifetimes of several owners.
