La Nuit

$500.00
Antique oil painting from France: A work on wood of the XXth century French School. We can see a woman in bed, with a certain surprise on her face as she looks up from her four-poster bed. The interior cold colors in the painting transposes the idea of ​​the intimate, and a discreet light emanates from the red bedding and white sheets. The subject seems to speak directly to us. This scene is nocturnal and lit from within.
The brush strokes are precise, without any particular thickness. The oak frame is mostly matte with just a slight sheen, revealing the nuances of the work it contains.
