Offered is a beautiful 19th century oil painting of a mother taking a break from her embroidery to feed her baby. Although we have not been able to find a signature the painting is clearly by a trained artist with lovely detail in every element of the painting. Painting measures 20" x 14" and is sold unframed. There are a few small paint chip areas and two previous repairs as seen on the verso image. The painting still retains the thick impasto of the flowers, embroidery, and other areas throughout the scene. Despite the minor condition issues, with the right frame, this painting would be a real treasure.
