This is a pretty antique oil on canvas mounted on a wooden panel,that we can date from the end of the 19th century.
It depicts a nice brown and white cow, grazing in a meadow. She seems looking at you !
All details of the animal,the attitude,,the fur,the expression of the look, are very well rendered.
The canvas has been partially glued on a wooden panel,a long time ago.
There are some little lacks of paint here and there,but nothing important,and it can be restored very easily.
But if you prefer authentic objects,this pretty painting can be kept ‘’ dans son jus ‘’ !
It is surrounded by a solid waxed wooden frame,with a nice patina.
Unfortunately,the artist did not sign his work.
Dimensions : 11,6’’ x 14,8’’ framed (29,5cm x 37,5cm)
9’’ x 12,2’’ (23cm x 31cm) the panel
frame thickness is about 1,2’’ (3cm)
This charming painting would be perfect for a cow collector and can find its place in any country house.
Thank you very much for your visit.New items arriving each week,have a look !
