18th century painting Georges Van Den Bos (1853-1911) - 34¾" x 42¼"

SKU: 15709

This very dark painting is of an uncomfortable scene. The subject of the painting is dressed entirely in black with a large cloak that echoes the wings of the bats on the right. He holds a large open book. The lady in the red dress is sitting with her head lowered. She has a very embellished purse indicative of her wealth- it is as though the cloaked man is taking money from her. This painting is so very dark, that one wonders how Van Den Bos was able to paint it. Note the black cat, skulls, skeletons and tarot cards. A second lady is dressed in black and stands with her arms crossed. Oil on canvas with repairs visible from behind. It is signed on the bottom right.
