Presented for sale is a 19th century oil painting on board by Austrian artist, Franz von Defregger (1783 – 1849). The painting depicts a young boy sitting at the kitchen table playing with his puppy. The careworn kitchen and furniture relay a recurring theme in Defregger's work, which exemplifies the country peasant and their simple lifestyles. This painting is special because of the interaction between the young boy and his puppy and the gray background of an aging worn interior.

Franz von Defregger was born in Ederhof at Stronach in Tyrol in 1835. He spent the next 20 years traveling abroad where he studied under several well-known artists. He settled in Munich and became one of its leading genre painters. He was appointed a position as a professor at the Munich Academy where he continued to teach until 1910. His paintings can be found in major museum and personal collections.

The painting is in excellent condition and has been re-mounted in a complimentary more recent frame. It is signed by the artist in the lower left hand corner.
