Vintage Oil on Copper Paintings Framed Gold Gilt Oval Domed Glass G.Chabert #2
Small Oil on Copper painting by G.Chabert, Gold Gilt oval framed with domed glass. #02
We are very please to be able to offer this beautiful little oval framed oil on copper painting.
This wonderful little painting employs the very unique technique of painting with oils on to a prepped copper plate. This technique was very popular among the Dutch masters, with some of the finest examples of the technique created in the 17 century. The reflective nature of the copper combined with thin applications of the pigments results in an image that has a unique luminescent quality.
This little painting is a impressionistic pastoral scene, with a small roadside dwelling and a bridge nestled among trees. The painting is mounted in a small vintage/antique gold gilt oval frame, and is protected by a domed piece of glass. The frame measures 8 3/4 inches, by 6 3/4 inches, by 15/16 inch. The back is sealed in dark green felt. This painting weighs approximately 8 ounces. The painting is signed "Chabert G." Unfortunately I was unable to find out any information about the artist.
Condition- The condition of the painting and frame is excellent. The felt looks to have been replaced in recent years.
This is a very beautiful little painting done in a very unusual technique, it will make a very nice addition to your collection of artworks.
