A rare 19th C French Art Nouveau figurative panel, fairly large,
showing a knight riding his horse and a colt , against a castle on a hill in the background.

The artwork is hand-carved from an oak piece very likely, as it is heavy, and was part of Henri II furniture,
also called "neo-Renaissance", quite in vogue in the 1890s.

As a matter of fact, Art Nouveau being enamored with the Middle Ages
( see my painting # 34190pnt )

and the Henri II style being more Renaissance, there is an artful blend of both influences in the piece:

The castle is obviously medieval, also set among typical Art Nouveau trees,
while the knight's hairpiece is Renaissance.

The character and the 2 animals are beautifully rendered, in very high relief, and the scene is quite lively.

The piece has a lot of character and will bring prestige and originality to any decor!

CONDITION:
In very good condition.
Chips to the colt nose and mane. Not very noticeable.
Also 4 vertical cracks in the colt body and the terrain below. They do not affect the strength of the piece.

MEASUREMENTS:
Length: 19 3/4" Width: 10 7/8"
( 50 cm by 27.5 cm)

SHIPPING:
Will be shipped "EXPEDITED" from Paris (5-7 days) including online tracking, insurance and signature at delivery.
