Flemish Genre Painting c1790 with old Christie's Stencil.
The Milking Parlour
An attractive painting of a milkmaid in conversation with a farmer dating to the late 18th century. Unsigned, but with an interesting dated monogram featuring a bird and presented as a picture on the wall. I’ve been unable to trace this monogram and more research is required. There is an old Christie’s stencil verso and it is magnificently presented in a very ornate frame.
The canvas has been lined, probably in the 19th century. There is craquelure to the paint surface and the painting is in good order. The frame has losses and repairs.
