Guest Book

This lovely oil on board in the trompe l'oeil style is entitled Braderie and is signed in the painted nameplate P. Van Den BERG. Board measures 39.25" by 17.3". Frame measures 36.75" by 24.1" by 1.75". Depicted in this still life is a mantle decorated with an assortment of collectible items including a painting, ceramics, and metal objects. The term "braderie" translates to "fair" or "market" in Dutch (and "clearance sale" in French) and thus the title here has been used to indicate a personal collection of objects that are for sale. Full artist name is unknown. Possible artists include Paul van den Berg (1859+) and Piet van den Berg (1865-1950) based on review of the database. According to the Benezit, Paul van den Berg was born in Paris in 1859 and worked as a decorator, designer and painter, and exhibited at the Salon des Independants in Paris. Condition is good. Surface is relatively clean and shows a degree of craquelure consistent with age. There are areas of apparent inpainting. There are a couple areas of paint loss including a partial puncture near the lower right corner as seen in our images. Giltwood frame is modern and in good condition. Carries an identifying label of a French shipping company on the rear. Available for pickup or shipment from the Upper East Side of Manhattan (New York NY 10128). Appraised for insurance purposes by Sotheby's in 1998 for $4,500. Provenance upon request.
