"Gide François Théophile Etienne (1822-1890) Hunters, Oil On Canvas, XIX Century"Oil on canvas mounted on a key frame, framed by a wooden frame and gilded stucco with gold leaf. The painting dates from the middle of the XIX century. The painting is in good condition, it has, nevertheless, undergone a small restoration in the top left or the canvas has been pierced, see photos.
The frame, which is original, is in very good condition and it weighs very heavy.
Signature on the lower left: Gide.
It is a museum painting of a quality and an extraordinary finesse.
I apologize for the photos that are brilliant because of the varnish, it is very difficult to do justice to this painting.
Size of the painting: 66 x 47 cm
Size with frame: 88 x 73 cm
