About

France circa 1820 Portrait of an Abbe Oil on canvas, Oval : 59.5 x 49.5 cm Recently relined, in good condition In an old oval frame 69 x 59 cm The frame is a little bit damaged and could be replaced (see pictures) This fine portrait of clerk is marked by psychology and by the spirit of the time : In France after the Revolution and the Empire, Kings come back at the head of the State (Louis XVIII and later Charles X), a period called "Restauration", from 1815 to 1830. The idea was to forget what happened and to come back to the old times and habits of the "Ancien Regime", the Catholic Church played a major role in this political movement as it had also much suffered during Revolution. The sitter wears the wig just as his predecessors during the former century, just as if nothing had happened...
