Description This picture of a smiling young boy dressed in green and red velvet was probably painted in the nineteenth century. The half-length format and the pose of the figure, who turns towards the viewer raising his glass of wine, recall models popularised by Frans Hals in the seventeenth century. This painting could have been made as a forgery at a time when the taste for Dutch and Flemish old master paintings made them increasingly expensive and sought-after.
