I believe the subject of this painting was involved with one of the many conflicts against the Ottoman empire in the Balkans that occurred in the late 18th century or in the 19th Century. Any ideas of what country the subject could be from? He could be a Greek( Meglen Vlachs) from the Eprius or Macedonian area, or Serbian,Herzegovian or Montenegrin. The painting has a cypher that was applied at a later date. Perhaps when the painting was repaired. The style of the coronet would suggest a duke( perhaps a Voivod?) or Earl or Baron. There is the number 1762. This could be an inventory number( from the collection of the coronet over the letter M). Or, it could be connected to a victory over the Ottomans in that year of 1762,such as the Souli victory over the Ottoman Mahmoud Aga of Margriti the governor of Arta in 1762. The style of the painting is the 19th century, and I believe the artist was trained in France or perhaps Munich. I would truly appreciate your help in identifying the sitter and the country that he may have come from Thank you!

Pyrros: I mean we are one on top of the other like a massive orgy kind of thing, yet, no covid to be found anywhere.

Pyrros: Also Admin is of the same philosophy : covid does not exist, it is only a spiritual virtual concept not real.

Pyrros: false-Greeks hate Serbs. Serbs should only go to Bulgaria. The only serious Slavic land in south balkans who respects other Slavs.

ulf: What should they do? Watch them spread the disease? Don't be ridiculous, they should be graceful they allowed them to go back home. This mans health got worse after few days, now he is in Serbian hospital

Pyrros: The disease? ok... Anyways this is not the point. The point is Slavs need to get serious. Stop dealing with haters.
