Wonderful original oil on panel painting by listed Belgian artist Alfred Jacques Verwee (1838-1895) who specialized in painting animals. This charming painting is an interior stable scene of sheep and chickens. The gentleness of the scene is so endearing and pleasant to observe. It is signed in the lower right and guaranteed to be of the artist. It is housed in an ornate gilded frame which is the original. The painting measures 9.5" by 7". The frame measures 18" by 16". The painting does show some craquelure which adds to the patina and charm of the piece, but does not affect the integrity of the paint. The frame has some issues of missing gesso which is to be expected in a frame of this age and nature, but is still a asset to the piece and shows nicely. A wonderful opportunity to purchase a piece which is sure to go up in value, as his paintings continue to fetch nice prices. Provenance: Purchased from a private Belgian collection
Note: the frame is very heavy and will have to be housed in special packing. I will figure shipping after purchase.
