Antique Painting, Signed Claude Monet, Forest With A Stream. Up for sale is this original antique french impressionist oil on canvas painting by famous Claude Monet.
Signed in the typical for that time period : C. This painting is from my personal collection and i had it for over 20 years. The painting is 28 inches long and 19 3/4 inches wide which is very similar to several other paintings by Claude Monet please see past auctions at christies for this artist. The painting with Frame measures 32 inches by 24 1/2 inches and i strongly believe that it is the original frame to the painting (it has some pieces missing on the top, but it still is a super nice frame).
The subject of the painting is also very typical of the artist please see the paintings : woodland 1887, the avenue and the path in the forest. The painting has been professionally relined a second canvas was added to the back of the original canvas to stabilize the painting. This is usually done when the original canvas is damaged with holes or is torn on several places. There is also a good amount of inpainting (when paint is missing it is replaced by the restorer) approximately 15 to 20 %.Please see the last 3 photos listed. The photos show dark places under the blacklight, these are the parts that have been restored with more modern paint. If you look at the 11 photo you also will notice that where the signature is, there is no dark space. That proofs that the signature is original to the painting. Just like similar other paintings by monet it does have heavy impasto paint on many areas (another good sign of authenticity). The painting has also a few areas of paintloss (little white areas) the stretcher has the remains of an old seal and i believe there is another seal on the original canvas back, however it is covered up by the added canvas. I fully guarantee that the painting is an original 1867 oil on canvas signed and dated by Claude Monet. The painting is not in perfect condition and i do not have an provenance beyond me having it for over 20 years, which is reflected in the absurd low price i have it listed at. Those where in better condition, bigger and they had iron glad provenance. I have priced this painting accordingly. This item is in the category "Art\Paintings".
