|Painting is from Austrian-Hungarian empire--about 1870--is oil on canvas-has been relined--it is 24 inches wide x15.5 inches high with a 2.5 inch frame--unsigned--well painted and composed--background certainly has Barbazion school influence--significance of painting is unknown--a Hassidic folktale depicted? Somebody poking fun at the equestrian capabilities of the rider? The dog going after the horse and rider really makes the painting comical--not for the fox hunting crowd--this is a rare scene in Eastern Europe of period that has disappeared--the painting is delightful|
