This wonderful unopened Regency era portrait silhouette of a handsome country gentleman was produced in England during the early 19th century, circa 1820 to 1830, we can easily imagine this chap in a Bronte novel. What makes this silhouette particularly unusual is that has not been painted in the traditional black so often associated with silhouettes. Instead the face and majority of the sitter’s coat is painted in a dark sepia with bronzed highlights and black shadowing under his frock coat lapel. Interesting too how the profile fills the aperture. The silhouette artist George Crowhurst 1827 -1844 is known to have created these wider body profiles. The silhouette has been produced to a very high standard; the artist was clearly a talented silhouettist.

The painting is housed behind its original convex glass in its original papier mache frame. The frame has never been opened. The silhouette was purchased as part of a collection alongside a Edward Foster silhouette which is listed in our store, Item ID:TA12397.

Please see our collection of early 19th century portrait miniatures and silhouettes listed separately in our store.
