Here is one of my favorite French naughty paintings that I've enjoyed for many years. The scene is fabulous: a French 'lady' brings a French hunter with his hunting dog into her boudoir, covering his eyes in a game while her previous lover quietly leaves the room. ah-ha! So charming! And so very, very French.
The miniature is in good condition, the colors still very bright and beautiful. The frame is original to it and shows much wear to the wood. I have opened this one and the very bottom of the oval is clipped off of the painting but it does not show in the frame.
I could not find a signature on it but there is a lot going on in the scene, so it's hard to know. I don't see any. Please see the photos for approximate measurements and details. French in origin, mid 1800s.
