Antique Oil Painting Young Girl Signed Bregoli after Greuze
Fabulous oil painting on canvas of a young girl and dead bird after the famous painting by Jean-Baptiste Greuze. The painting is signed on reverse Bregoli (Italian 1898-1918) a listed artist himself. This composition is after Greuze's original painting "L'oiseau Mort" or "The Dead Bird" in the collection of the Musee du Louve in Paris. The painting is exquisitely done and exhibits the same ethereal quality of the original. The innocence and beauty of the young girl is captivating. The subject matter is tender and endearing as she mourns the death of her bird. The painting measures 25.75" tall by 21.25" wide. The elegant gold frame measures 32.50" by 28" and, I believe, is original to the piece. A few spots where the paint is missing (see last photo) which could easily be touched up. Or hung just the way it is, which is my preference. My pictures do not do the piece justice, as it is much more lovely in person. If you admire the work of Greuze, you will LOVE this painting!
