This charming painting is reminiscent the frescoes of Pompeii. It is a fine example of Salles-Wagner's ability to render feminine beauty and emotional expression in the French academic tradition. It stands out as a particularly well-painted work by this artist.
Good condition, original frame
The artist was the donor of The Salles Wagner in Nimes, France. His works are in collections around the world and have passed through the major auction houses. Very collectible.
