Antique oil painting from France: Still life on wood panel signed Artonne and dated 1866 in the lower left hand corner.
This romantic composition of white roses and rosebuds has an ultra smooth surface and a slight patina effect. The play of chiaroscuro is marked by a very dark mineral blue background, the light of which gradually springs from the foliage to the petals. The curved frame in gilded wood carved with a rococo and shell pattern gives an additional refinement to the work.
