Folk art portrait of a wealthy gentleman, oil on panel, unsigned. The gentleman is wearing a black jacket, bright yellow vest and a white shirt with a bow. The painting was always hung from a linen thread at the top and has never been framed. It is in very good condition, having been professionally conserved. The wooden panel on which it is painted is now warped, however, as is so often the case. 19th century, possibly by Ambrose Swayze.
