Oil on canvas, 12 3/4" by 18", unframed, the subject elegantly dressed 18th century figures in a classical wooded landscape, the mustachioed male figure on bended knee, asking for the hand of his chosen lady, as three other female figures look on. The painting's subject and format are 18th century, but judging from the canvas and stretcher, the work was actually executed in France, in the late years of the 19th century or first years of the 20th. It is in reasonably good condition, with just some losses at upper left and lower left, possibly from frame abrasion. This charming, whimsical work is out of an attic near Camden, Maine. It would look great in a traditional interior, woman's dressing area, etc. .
