Portrait of an Unknown Man

Russia, 1820-1830s

Not without reason, in the inventory this portrait is dated only to the first half of the 19th century: it is indeed hard to pin it down more precisely. The neckcloth, white waistcoat and dressing gown were popular both at the beginning of the century and much later, so the dating of 1820s–30s given in the exhibition catalogue is highly provisional and based more on the impression from the manner of painting.
