Chabod was a pupil of Signol and Gérome, and exhibited regularly at the Salons from 1868 to 1881. His works include Dead Christ, Sleeping Bacchus and Meal of Dry Bread (Au pain sec) and realistic Nature Morte (still life as in this painting). This is an oil painting on wooden board, exquisitely done, showing a still life of arranged day's hunt.
These paintings are of a genre known in France as "Nature Morte" and they are not so much a painting of dead animals and birds, but are more a small prayer of thanks for the day's meal. They often include still life vegetables and sea life, as well. This particular one is among my favorites, the rather "trompe l'oeil" fashioning that is so realistic, it often feels like a 3-dimensional sculpted painting, or real life. The artist is well-recorded in French reference books, and obviously deserved to be included in major collections. I have acquired 2 of his paintings from the same estate in France, and will list the other separately as it is horizontally oriented and equally as appealing.
This one is just magnificent, color is vibrant and style confident in brush and still very realism-bound. The measurements of both frame and painting panel are noted in our photos.Outer frame is 27" x 22", so a nice large example of the style. They're often quite small wood panel paintings.
I have a special love of them and own several in my own collection. I'm sure I will regret letting this artist's fine work go. Alas, I cannot keep everything, can I. It will not be in our shop very long.
Very good to excellent for age and type. Since it is in oil on wooden panel, there are no issues of a torn or damaged canvas. The painting is just magnificent in all ways, including condition.I think the frame might not be original and could well be much later. It holds the painting nicely, however. Most of this type of painting remained without frame and hung without frame, and that's my own preference. But this painting came to us in this wood frame, and it will arrive to you in its frame. Measurements are noted directly on photos.
