Description

Oil on canvass.
Utterly charming. The subject set in an English landscape with flowering foliage. significant of youth, and with views to the distance. The boy with angelic face, holding his Summer hat, wearing a wonderfully bright red tunic. His favourite pet looking on contently.
A magical composition of good size, the original provincial painted frame with a hint of gilt slip of discreet simplicity, allowing the picture to display itís unfettered charm.
We prefer to acquire objects in as found original condition, and to live with, which this is. However with a professional light clean and some minor restoration would bring about enhancement of colour and content, incrementing itís investment, and an acquisition to cherish for years.
We think the artist has discreetly signed his work in the dogs collar name plate, and would clarify with cleaning.
Circa 1760.
