C1770 French Genre Oil Painting of a Musician
This French 18th century genre painting is oil on canvas. Unframed, it is 60 cm by 80.5 cm. The subject matter is a gentleman playing the French bagpipes to his lady, who toys with a garland of flowers she has been assembling, and to a sheep, who seems to be charmed by the music. In the distance on the right hand we have another couple walking with a dog. The painting shows the delight in nature and is related to works by Boucher and Fragonard. While it has clearly been restored in the near past, there are minor losses lower right.
