This 1900’s young man with the curtained hair

1900’s RPPC. Private Collection.

I love this portrait for many reasons; the weathering adds a certain something to it that’s hard to describe, this young man’s also a bit nervous and awkward like he didn’t quite know how he would pose after he put his hat on the floor. And the backdrop drape is not figurative but painted more abstractly.

RPPC: Back typical of North American cards of the period, but with no stamp box.
