In fine condition; no chipping, flaking or paint loss. No inpainting or restoration, except for a light cleaning and varnishing.  Recently re-framed with a linen liner and gold molding; worthy of hanging in a prominent location.

There are elements in the painting evoking the work of Paul Cézanne 1839 – 1906, “one of the greatest of the Post-Impressionists whose works and ideas were influential in the aesthetic development of many 20th-century artists and art movements, especially Cubism. Cézanne’s art, misunderstood and discredited by the public during most of his life, grew out of Impressionism and eventually challenged all the conventional values of painting in the 19th century through its insistence on personal expression and on the integrity of the painting itself. He has been called the father of modern painting.” – Various Sources.

Without a signature, inscriptions, this painting is offered as the work of a ‘follower’ of Paul Cézanne and is reflective of the era that it represents. It is “in the style of Cézanne” and may have been a student experimenting with Cézanne’s palette and technique. The painting has been laid down on board and there are remnants of a newspaper article citing the Ottoman Empire attached to the back edge of the board. In retrospect, the use of a linen liner was probably not a good idea for a painting of this period. Presentation could be improved with a plain, gold liner.
