"Félix Ziem (1821-1911) The Launch Of A Battleship Cruiser Ship In Toulon"
An anecdotal work by a major artist for lovers of paintings representing ships.
This oil on panel by Félix Ziem is presented in a beautiful period gilded frame which measures 75 cm by 85 cm (45 cm by 55 cm without the frame).
In good condition, it is signed lower left and represents the launch of an armored cruiser in the harbor of Toulon.

Painter of the School of Barbizon renowned for his seascapes and landscapes of Venice and Constantinople, attached to the Orientalist movement, he is considered one of the precursors of Impressionism.
The first painter to enter the Louvre Museum during his lifetime (in 1910), Van Gogh admired his painting and we can read in one of his letters to his brother Theo, when he arrived in Arles: "I would like to be able to make the blues that says Ziem, who do not age like the others ... "
