Portrait of Rwandan

J. Willems

Belgian school circa 1930.

Oil on canvas mounted on panel 61 X 50 cm, mounted in a beautiful exotic wood frame adorned with silver rods 73 X 63 cm.  A small accident on the left shoulder deserves cleaning. This portrait full of nobility of a man proudly wearing traditional dress and especially this hairstyle  characteristic, the amasunzu, worn by the nobles and dignitaries of this country at the time which quickly put us on the trail of the origin of the model. Painted camped in a green landscape of hills and lakes, his penetrating gaze animates his portrait. Do not hesitate to ask us for photos or additional information by email or phone.
