VERY OLD GENERAL JAN CHRISTIAAN SMUTS PORTRAIT **SEEMS TO BE A WATERCOLOUR**

DENOTED A21 at the back of the picture.

1870 - 1950

PLEASE NOTE : There are issues with the painting and the frame.  The worst damage is a blister hole towards the left of his head and a scuff mark on his lapel.  The picture is also coming away from the frame (I believe it was originally mounted with a curved glass).  There are also issues with the frame where the veneer is damaged.  There are also other smudge marks on the picture.  On the right of his head next to his cheek it seems as if the top coat has come off leaving a white "halo" - his jaw line is still good - I cannot feel any difference. The insignia are still good. Someone has tried to fix the back of the picture where the brown paper tore with masking tape. I have endeavoured to photograph all the issues so please see photographs which form an integral part of the description.  I have not cleaned the picture at all and it is in the condition it is in the condition that I received it.

The dimensions of the picture are approximately 41 x 22.

BUT THIS IS A VERY RARE FIND.
