Knight Templar


Knight Templar


The unidentified subject of this portrait wears regalia associated with the Knights Templar. In addition, jewels and badges related to other Masonic groups, such as the Shrine and the Scottish Rite, ornament his coat. Clearly, the subject of this work took pride in his involvement with Freemasonry. Although the history of this work is not known, its size and carefully portrayed details suggest the painting may have been commissioned to hang in a Masonic building.
