Charming Mid 19th Century Russian School Folk Art Painting
Absolutely adorable painting with a young child on her sleigh out gathering wood for the fire with her loyal dog. Her mother or big sister helps out.
A winter forested landscape keeps them all bundled up warm.
This painting is quite old and does show some age. The back of the canvas shows two past repairs that appear to be quite old too, possibly early 20th century.
The painting shows some craquelure (consistent with age), and the edges of the canvas show gilding from a past frame that was lost decades ago.
We think the painting will display nicely as is, though a new frame and a minor cleaning could add a little sunshine to this charming Russian School Folk Art oil painting.
Dimensions 10.5" x 12.5".
Unsigned. Classic Russian School / Eastern European style.
Fair antique condition. An oldie but a goodie!
