Lot Essay


Depicted in profile, his hair and garments finely rendered and standing on a small tuft that hints at a larger space, this portrait of a man well illustrates the distinctive style of German immigrant artist Jacob Maentel (1763-1863) and in particular his work dating from circa 1810 to 1820.
