Description


Antique Oil Painting Spanish Soldier Oak Board Gilt Gesso Frame Late 17th early 18th Century.
A 17th or 18th century oil painting, on thick oak board, and depicting a Spanish soldier, wearing armour and sitting astride a long suffering white horse. He is partaking of a drink of wine prior to departure. The horse has seen it all before. Unsigned.
It is housed in a wood & gilt gesso frame with gilt wood slip, which is later than the painting and likely to be early Victorian. The oak board on which it is painted is about 1/2” thick.
Both painting and frame require restoration. The painting has lost paint vertically to its right hand side and remains slightly flaky. The loss of paint has revealed the gesso ground below, which presents as a chalky white plaster. The frame has had some gesso repairs, to the outer beading, and some historical 'touching up'.
Please study the 9 photographs which form an important part of this description and which are indicative of its general condition.
£125 for this intriguing and rare artwork.
Please note that this item will remain open to sale until paid for.
