Framed Early 20th Century Oil - Three Musicians
An impressive oil painting on canvas laid to board, showing three musicians in 18th century dress. The artist has beautifully captured these musician's jolly expressions, mid song, giving the composition a dynamic quality. The rich earthy tones perfectly match records of 18th century costume and conjures the vibrant atmosphere of this highly creative era. The artist's attention to the conventions of Italian School painting is present through the use of chiaroscuro and attention to clear tonal contrasts.
