An 18th or early 19th century painting of a noble gentleman, oil on canvas, 30 1/2" by 23 1/2" on the stretchers 35" by 27 3/4" framed. This work does not appear to be actually signed, though there is much writing in blurred old ink on the stretcher in old German hand, seemingly identifying the sitter. The old style script and the way the ink has spread into the wood makes it all difficult to read. I do see, I think, "Franz Joseph Augustin von Stichner" or similar, and elsewhere the word "und". The work has considerable condition issues after 200 or so years, including a number of outright holes and tears, happily, generally in the field area and not in critical parts of the portrait; though, there is one tear in the jaw area.. A vertical tear at left along the stretcher bar measures 6 3/4" in length; the tear t right, 6 1/2"; another to the right of the gentleman about 2", and so forth. In addition there is extensive craquelure, and general dirt. This is absolutely a worthy candidate for restoration---could certainly be brought all the way back. More photos upon request.
