JEAN BAPTISTE ANTOINE EMILE BERANGER (FRENCH, 1814-83), OIL ON MAHOGANY PANEL, H 16", W 13", A PLEASANT DISTRACTION
Depicting a woman taking a break from cleaning the artist's studio. Signed using the brush nib in upper center "Em. Beranger 1878". Frame H 23" x L 19".
When viewed under blacklight, areas of varnish from a previous cleaning fluoresce. There is an area of light overpaint in the region of the signature. However, the overpaint does not diminish the over all painterly quality of the work. Panel embossed with the Tachet Patent and having the wax Paris customs stamp.
