19th C. Oil on Board Peaches Still Life

Regular price $160.00

I love an antique still life painting of fruit, and this pile of peaches with purple fig at right was beautifully executed, with a richness perfectly befitting ripe peaches! It hasn't been cleaned, and is a somewhat dark, but get it in the right light and those peaches are luminous! (Of course one could have it cleaned, but I personally like the aura and atmospherics of it just as it is, as if painted in candlelight to begin with and meant to be viewed that way.)

10 3/4 x 8 5/16 and in good condition, with light wear and a bit of paint loss around the edges of the board as evident.
