Hernando Villa Portrait of a Spanish Nobleman Oil on Board circa 1944 P2666
Acquired from his sister's estate by John Williams, Villa's agent during his lifetime and after his death. An astonishingly vivid image, as much fantastical as historical, fully immersed in the details of the period and yet shockingly modern in its effect. The sitter's unflinching head-on pose yet faraway gaze and the almost psychedelic level of detail lavished on the painting (the fabrics alone!) make for a wonderfully immersive work of art. It's one of the best things we've ever seen Hernando Villa do.
Board measures 21" x 33" and the frame is 30 1/4" x 41" x 2" deep.
