Lot 0700
French, 19th/20th century. Unsigned decorative oil painting of a curtained backdrop in the form of a cartouche with floral swags, gilt scrolled foliate accents, crossed cornucopias with floral arrangements above crossed fiery torch, cupid's arrow, and horned musical instrument. Framed 29.75" x 34". Unframed 23.75" x 27.75".


The painting has been relined. There are a few scattered losses--the largest of which is located at the bottom right of the medallion on the yellow cream colored background and a pink flower. The canvas appears to have been rolled at one point as there are long horizontal cracks as well as craquelure. Visible separation of relining at back edge of stretcher and bubble pocketing from separation visible on back. Under black light examination, floral painting appears to have significant inpainting and retouches to losses including on edges, darker space surrounding medallion, and to flowers.
