Portrait of a Gentleman, c.1640, Robert Walker
Oil on canvas
17th Century
30 x 25 in (76.2 x 63.5 cm)
This portrait shows Walker's digestion of Vandyckian themes, but in the more muted key which characterises his work, The sitter resembles the artist himself, in such self-portraits as that in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford.
