Hen Chicks European Oil
Charming European oil painting of a mother hen and her six chicks. The artist has captured the mother hen in such an endearing way. She lovingly watches over her brood with one chick on her back and one under her wing. The painting is a nice size to display with other related pieces measuring 11" wide by 7.75" high. I have left the painting just as I found it without a frame. The simplicity seems to be quite fitting. I would date this to the last quarter of the 19th century. It is signed by the artist---Walammers? There are two old repairs---one on the chick's beak (see last photo). The other in the background to the right of the hen. Old stretcher marks are visible. These do not detract from the painting, in my opinion, and add to its charm. This one is very special!
