Early Still Life Oil...
A beautiful, very early, still life oil painting. It is on canvas, and is dated 1790 and signed. It is a unique piece, which is dark and moody, the colours and detail of the fruit is very beautiful. The painting has a rounded boarder like appearance, we're not sure if this has happened over time or whether it is original to the painting, as the back has a 1 piece linen back, so it doesn't appear to be repaired, our best guess is it has been in a round frame for many years.. The patina is slightly crackled, but particularly good for its age.
It measures: 46cm wide and 38cm wide.
