A fine portrait of a Gentleman in rust coat
In the original gold frame, the reverse with locks of hair tied with gold wire in the shape of a feather within gold mount and blue glass border
This is a fine early example by Cosway, with typical plain background before he uses the Antwerp blue in his later works. The position of the head in relation to the body resembles the work of Sir Joshua Reynolds
