Up for sale is an outstanding antique oil painting depicting an outdoor portrait of two young children with their small Yorkshire Terrier by their side. This original folk art composition dates to the late 1700’s to early 1800’s and is in good condition for its age. This is a large and impressive painting with the canvas measuring approximately. 26.75 x 36 inches while the large gesso gold wood frame measures 31 x 43 inches. What makes this a most interesting painting is that the head of the boy, girl and entire dog were painted on a separate piece of canvas and then attached to the bodies. The background and bodies were pre painted by the artist and then when he received the commission would have to just paint the figures faces. The painting is in good condition for its age showing one small chip at the top of the girls head and craquelure across the surface. Their is also surface dirt darkening the painting which would benefit from a light cleaning brightening up the colors adding depth. Their is also some play in the canvas back and forth by no means severe. This wonderful early example is a phenomenal work of primitive art in a most unique style that is ready to hang in ones home or collection. The gesso wood frame has been repainted but is very attractive with just a small portion missing on in the top left. I can not guarantee that more gesso will not break off in transit, expect it, portions are loose and to safely packed this will almost ensure some more will remove.
