I recently bought 4 paintings from an estate in France, all obviously by the same artist and framed in early to mid-1800s frames in the manner of the Fontainebleau School, heavy wood with opulently gilded gesso appliqué. I am unable to find a signature on any of them. I'm going to list all 4 as separate offerings. The oil painting is done on a panel rather than stretched linen canvas, and has survived in very fine form. Great intimate small paintings for shelf or wall, beautifully framed.
This offering is for the painting of a billie/billy and nanny goat, resting. You are buying only the painting featured in this listing. c.1830-60 French painting, in the manner of the Fontainebleau School, naturalist but with a slightly Impressionist feel to it. Superb and ready to hang and enjoy. The size of this painting makes it one you might even consider for a doll's house, as the smaller of the group of paintings from this un-named artist. This one is 12" x 10.5" outer frame, and painting is just 7.75" x 5.75". Age evident on the frame, but both frame and painting remain in very good to excellent condition for age and type. There is a matching nanny and kid goat painting in same size frame, offered for sale separately, if you wish to have both paintings featured in our final photo. Look for it sold separately.
