DOLL & CHILDREN PAINTINGS
DATED 1871 FRENCH DRAWING
She is a charming little girl. She would add just the right touch to your doll room. I found her at a fashionable antiques shop on the Left Bank of Paris a few years ago. I have enjoyed her and now it is time to pass her along to the next caretaker. Dated 1871, it is a pencil drawing that was then highlighted with color by the artist. The artist signed his or her name, "Bougé" and the date "26 Juillet 1871" and then what I believe is the town of "Lucy".Click on photo to enlarge it. Other views 1,2 3, 4.
The frame is a gold leafed frame from the same period as the painting. It is in excellent condition with lovely patina and just the perfect amount of distress. It measures 9" x 10 3/4".
In generally excellent condition, there are two small water stains on the paper, that only emphasis the antiquity, for my taste.
A lovely complement to your doll collection. $495.
