Vintage French barn painting, signed oil on board
Hummingbear Vintage features unique (often whimsical) vintage and antique decorative items from various parts of the world.
his is an enchanting French oil painting on masonite board. It shows the inside of a barn complete with two horses, three chickens, and four sheep. The painting measures approximately 10.5" tall x 16" across and is signed and dated in the bottom right corner— "Delous 1975". The style is naive and the artist has done an amazing job of capturing the character of these delightful animals as they feed and go about their business!
The painting is in good vintage condition. It does show wear consistent with age including damage to the corners as well as a few scrapes and scuffs, and some surface dirt. There is one chip on the first horse's left hind leg which has been filled in. Other than that, the original paint is all intact. The surface may have darkened a little over the years but the colors are still rich. The board is solid with no visible cracks or signs of repair. (See photos for clearest understanding of condition.)
This is a unique and totally charming painting. Whether you choose to display it as is or to get it framed, the artwork would make a fine addition to any collection of folk, vintage or animal art. It would look especially sweet in a kid's room, cottage or country home, and would also make a wonderful gift for any animal lover.
