AFTER ADOLPHE WILLIAM BOUGUEREAU OIL PAINTING. This masterful oil painting is an early 130 year-old original or a 130 year older fine copy of The French master W.
Bouguereau painted mostly pheasant girls and children. The painting retains the original gilded period frame. It pains me to sell this painting. I will now describe it as best I can, and everything else I know about it. About 50 years ago we put a big addition on the house, so we had many new walls in need of artwork and the like.We came across this painting on private sale and was instantly drawn to it. It was shown to me by a man from Geneva Switzerland who had found it at an estate sale in Europe. The man stated that the age of the painting, and the style of work were consistent with what Bouguereau may have done during that period.
The painting had been in 1 family for over 75 years. Not cleaned and there are no repairs. PERIOD FRAME IS ORIGINAL TO THIS ART WORK. IT is a PERIOD 120-150 YEAR OLD PIECE OF ART.If you would like to pick it up in person that is fine too. On to the painting, described as best as I can. If you check my feedbacks (100% by the way) you will see that I deal mostly in antique related items.
