A naïve still life oil painting on canvas from the 19th Century depicting fruit, books and Pitcher, signed Louis to the bottom left.
- Original oil painting on canvas.
- Classical still life composition featuring fruits, books, and a pitcher.
- Warm, earthy tones dominate the palette, creating a comforting and inviting ambiance.
The artist has captured the interplay of light and shadow, giving life to the textures of the fruits' skins, the pitcher's glossy surface, and the spines of the books. The choice of objects reflects a celebration of scholarly pursuit and nature's bounty, common themes in the period's still life genre.
In good condition with wear and tear appropriate for age and use to include some paint-loss as pictures. This piece is well-preserved, with the natural craquelure of the paint adding to its authenticity and charm. The canvas is taut and the colors remain vibrant, with the signature of 'Louis' clearly visible, confirming its provenance.
