Mid-19th Century French Oil on Board Chicken Painting in Carved Gilt Frame
Created in Normandy France, circa 1870, and set in the original carved gilt frame, the antique artwork composition is painted on board; it depicts a typical “Basse-Cour” (or farmyard) in the manner of Coppenolle, with chickens and rooster grazing in front the Normand style farm house. The sun is reflecting and the small pond in the foreground has ducks swimming. The neutral tones of the charming painting are emphasized by the frame’s gold leaf finish. Measures: 24.75″W x 22.25″H.
