Click image for detail

Beautifully painted in France in the late 1800's, this oil painting features a spray of flowers or blossom filled vine, with stunning cream white flowers with a darker heart or center. They remind me of passion flowers. There is one lone pink rosebud and a white rose in their midst. Perhaps this is meant to be a Victorian flower language message. Gorgeous colors, this was painted on slate, as these often were, the colors have faded over time.

There is craquelure, this is such a pretty decorative accent piece. Painted in the style of Paul de Longpre or Catherine Klein so beloved by the Victorians. There are a few areas of loss on the edge where this was set into a frame long ago, and a few paint spots from the time that new painter, Jacques, forgot to remove the art when he painted the main salon. {the family never used him again!} Signed on the back, L.Dupont, Paris 1876.
