Pair of French oil on tin “Mode Francaise” paintings, c.1800-25. These fashion plates, possibly painted for a fashion house, depict French, Napoléon-era, trends in costume – the white muslin dress with an Empire-style waistline, and demure bonnet, worn by the lady – and the puffed coat sleeves, long trousers, tall shirt collar, and the loosely tied cravat on the gent. There are the obligatory accessories too – an umbrella for her, and walking stick for him.

The detail in both paintings is exquisite with the costume elements very finely depicted. The ground color – a peach hue - is nicely subdued. Paint loss has occurred mostly around the border leaving for the most part, the portraits largely intact, as shown. These appear to have originally been framed and merit reframing.
Size: 6” x 9 ½” each.
