Probably late 18th century, b oth the young man and the girl are beautifully painted, their facial expressions are superb, the girl is depicted with absolute concentration on the game in hand. Note the skilled figural proportion and also the way their hands and fingers have been beautifully constructed. After an original painting by a follower of Rembrandt held in the National Gallery Collection. Condition is very good, commensurate with age, the canvas most likely re-lined and with only minor craquelure to the painted surface.
Apparently unsigned and with an indistinct old (probably Christie's) part stencil number verso. Housed in an equally good gilt composition frame. Please note the large image dimensions of: 47'' x 37'' (119cm x 94cm). Formally with the collection at Trawsgoed Mansion , Ceredigion, Wales.(Trawsgoed Mansion having been the ancestral seat of the Vaughan family for six centuries). As usual, open to sensible offers for this superb and important artwork.
