Oil on canvas painting of daisies and other flowers in a vase against a neutral background, 24" by 16 7/8" (31" by 25" in original old gold frame), signed at lower right by the well listed French 19th century artist EUGENE PETIT (1839-1886). This classic work is in excellent, fresh condition, having had a recent reline and cleaning by the highly regarded Yost conservation studios in Connecticut. A placard on the frame gives the artist's name. On the reverse, before lining, there was this statement on the canvas reverse, in an old hand: "The undersigned declares that this picture has been painted by himself"; and then the artist's own signature is nearby. The restorer photographed this and affixed a color printout of the photo on the protective foamboard backing. There are some small beading losses on the frame, and others which could be easily retouched. Petit was known for his genre, hunting, animals (often, dogs) and still life works. He first exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1863 and won a bronze medal there in 1873. Similar paintings have sold to the vicinity of $6,000 at auction in Europe in recent years. A fine addition to your traditional interior.
