Pair (Man and his wife) of oil painting portraits, c. 1830s, French, in original frames Unsigned, on linen canvas, very good condition Frame: 16" x 14". An intimate set of portraits, not signed by the artist but very charming and still in their original frames and in very good condition. 1820-30s, Empire to Directoire era couple, likely their marriage portraits. The lovely young wife is shown at her desk arranging flowers, a 3/4 sidelong pose with fine composition. The young gentleman in opposite sidelong 3/4 pose and interior of an office or study, book and pen in hand. Tells us about the lives of these two.
Long ago and we have no identity of the couple, sadly. A wonderful set to hang together, and we're keeping them together as our offering is for both paintings. Very good to excellent condition for age and type, they have been conserved, bonded the old linen canvas to a newer one to extend the life of the old paintings.
This is a common practice in France, and saves many paintings that would otherwise be lost to the centuries. These are in their original frames, which is wonderful. The frames are each in very nice condition, no losses of note to deal with or restore.
Measurements are noted on our photos, but the outer frame is 16" x 14" and the aperture showing the painting is 12" x 10". No noticeable damage to either painting, no holes. Restorations might have been carried out that we cannot see. Heavy old forest growth wooden frames with gesso, gilded. We're easy to deal with.Our fine inventory is very important.
