Offered for your consideration today is this striking antique Dutch old master original oil painting on canvas depicting two figures in an interior scene -- an older gentleman smoking a pipe with a smaller person/child on his knee drinking from a tankard. As you can see, the room is dimly lit, but warm and intimate, accented with lovely textiles.The artwork, which measures approximately 12 3/4" by 15 1/4" (14 3/4" by 17 1/4" as framed), is unsigned, but obviously painted by a skilled hand. Judging from the appearance of the canvas/wooden stretcher/pegs, I'm guessing it dates to the late 18th century.
As one might expect, given the age of the painting, the canvas does have a few condition issues, including 4 small tears/abrasions and a darkening of the varnish (compare the flash photos to those taken in natural light). I'm assuming you could have the canvas cleaned if you like, but I think it presents well as is, and would make a handsome addition to your home or office.
