Here is a fabulous little naughty treasure! A French couple in-love (hopefully!) in a beautiful setting of flowers and garlands and marble urns with statues, you see the French maiden’s bosom exposed, ohhh! Yes indeed, her lover has got her in his arms as he whispers sweet things to her and we can see that with her arm raised high in the air she is allowing him to disrobe her, so obviously she is a very willing participant! (And it looks like the female statue bust on the side is looking on in approval! Like, ‘yeah girl, go for it’. Ah ha!) It is French fabulous!
The painting itself measures only about 1 ½” x 1 ¾” in the frame it is 2 ½” x 2 ½” x 1/8” so it is small enough for a dollhouse, but make sure the scale is correct if using it for that. It is in excellent condition with just a bit of the original French paper on the back missing, the colors are bright and beautiful and the painting was nicely executed. It is a wonderful French tiny treasure and I love it!
French in origin, circa 1890 or thereabout.
