European oil painting on canvas: 19th-century Italian School oil on canvas signed (illegible) and dated 1882. The surface of the canvas is smooth and uniform. This is an academic portrait of an Italian bourgeois. The luminosity of the work is vivid for a portrait of this period, carried by the light background. A certain sweetness emanates from the character.
This portrait would make a lovely addition to a sitting room or portrait wall.
