This lovely French 19th century oil painting on square canvas has a sky blue background, a fluffy cloud fills the central part of the painting where a woman is lying down playing the lyre, while a graceful cherub seems to twirl over her. This oil on canvas painting represents the allegory of music - with a woman dressed in classical clothes and a putto- a very popular theme during all the neoclassical age, with its lively scene inspired by the Rococo period. The composition creates a awesome trompe-l'œil effect thanks to the color palette scheme. Well painted white and gray shadings (chiaro scuro) that stands out from the light blue background. This painting originally was an over door frieze that have been part of a magnificent paneled room with boiserie. It can be placed over door once again or simply hung as wall art decoration. It could be also used as an unusual headboard. Its antiquity-inspired theme and masterful handling of illusionistic effects, would be a coveted addition to any traditional or modern home and will decorate any room beautifully. This antique allegoric painting is housed in a vintage carved parcel giltwood and white lacquer frame with gilt carved patterns on each sides and central high portion of the frame. The painting is in very good condition and has its original canvas, stable and saturated colors, slight and desirable cracqueleure in some parts, professionally cleaned, old and very well executed restoration in a little portion on the verso of the canvas (low left corner on the back of the canvas) Dimensions: H 87 cm x W 87 cm x D 4 cm Please note: Italian Fine Arts Authority must check this item in order to allow its exportation.
