What an intriguing painting!!! Oil on Canvas in original highly gilt Frame...and signed by the artist: "Barthalamy"....a French artist who I believe was working in the 1940-1950 period.

The artist has a unique thick Palette technique of small rectangular squares of the background of a somewhat "Teal Green"....and the faces are applied with a thick facial white makeup.

The Frame size is approx. 33" x 41", a goodly size.....and it is in excellent original condition....

There are so many strange objects in this scene...a "smoking Goose" on top of the Stand (is it an Incense Burner??), with a group of Peacock Feathers and a tray on the Stand's shelf....a tray with flowers and a small box on the floor... and the large Geisha seems to be holding a bowl of steaming rice?? And so many Japanese writings that I cannot translate??? (Does it really translate??) Their couture is quite colorful and well designed....

I fell in love with this curious painting, and just wish I had a wonderful "Orientalist Room" in which to hang it !! The Colors are vibrant...it has never been cleaned or restored...it is in great original condition....

So....an original oil on canvas...for your pleasure......!!
