"Launay : "lavandiere In The Sunset""This is the kind of anecdotes that we love to tell: the other day a friend asked me for a frame and I told him that I was going to get one to re-cut in my deposit.
After some strata of archaeological digs, I found one that suited him and to take it to the framer, I dismantled it to remove the glass and the reproduction of De la Tour that was inside and, intense satisfaction, the Support panel was painted from a washerwoman's scene at dusk in a mill landscape! This is not the first time that this has happened to me, but each time, I'm as excited as the discovery of a treasure ...
This is a 28.4 x 41 cm etched panel for the drawing and probably painted with gouache or tempera. Signed M or N Launay and dated April 1914.
Some non-traversing worm holes on the reverse. Do not hesitate to ask us by email or phone for additional information or photos.
We have many objects and paintings to restore in our shop of Pau for which we prefer the sale on the spot, preferably in lots!
