SKU: 16822

A delightful pair of large antique French portraits of a brother and sister dated 1861. These lovely oil-on-canvas portraits in splendid gilded frames depict a boy drawing with chalk naughtily on a stone wall and a girl with a silver ring holding a bouquet of flowers. The gilded frame around the sister's portrait has traces of red gesso from beneath the gilding coming through. The frames have been changed from original but date from the same epoch. A whimsical pair of paintings to decorate your interior with a touch of French life from the 1800s. Artist has signed and dated the boy's portrait in the bottom right-hand corner. Artist inconnu.
