Johann Friedrich August Tischbein, Nicolas Châtelain.
1791, oil on canvas. Neue Pinakothek.
Monsieur Châtelain casually leans against a stone wall for his full length portrait by Johann Friedrich August Tischbein. He is twenty two years old with a keen interest in the fine arts. He is wearing a high crowned and cocked hat in black, a frock coat with turned down collars and no cuffs. The turned down collars expose his cravat, which ruffles just right under the chin.
