Oil on Canvas Portrait of a Belgian Soldier

Oil on Canvas Portrait of a Belgian Soldier


A very charming picture of a proud Belgian military officer. He is complete with handlebar moustache, folded arms and an unusually early wristwatch.

I would say it dates from the early part of the 20th century. 

The painting is signed 'Lopco' in the bottom right hand corner. The artist has used soft and naive brush strokes to great effect, creating a warm image.

The painting is framed in a beautiful gilt gesso frame that compliments the picture. The condition is good. There are some small signs of age on the canvas itself, a couple of small holes and the frame has a few losses but these aren't huge and I believe adds to the charm of the piece. Please see photographs.

Overall measurements are 65cm X 55cm X 5cm.
