19th Century French Hand Painted Pastoral Canvas Tapestry Signed Rosetta V.
This six foot hand painted canvas was crafted in France, circa 1870. The antique tapestry features an outdoor pastoral genre scene in the manner of David Teniers; the artwork, signed by the artist Rosetta V., depicts an outside peasant scene with woman and men attending their sheep and dogs; wonderful details throughout. The wall painted canvas is in excellent condition commensurate with age and use, and adorns rich, neutral colors. This composition would make a great addition to any wine cellar or game room! David Teniers the Younger (1610-1690) was a Flemish painter, print-maker, draughtsman, miniaturist painter, staff-age painter, copyist and art curator. He was an extremely versatile artist known for his prolific output. He was an innovator in a wide range of genres such as history, genre, landscape, portrait and still life. He is now best remembered as the leading Flemish genre painter of his day. Teniers is particularly well-known for developing the peasant genre, the tavern scene, pictures of collections and scenes with alchemists and physicians. Measures: 71″ W x 51″ H.
