Paul Louis Salvan (1877-1962), French
Oil on Canvas, Size 27cm x 35cm
Offering an early Paul Louis Salvan painting. He’s a listed French painter and well sought by collectors. Definitely late 19th century and an early work for the artist. Impressionistic in painting style and of rural France, which was a favourite of many artists from the period. The colours are brilliant and the style is fairly loose, with a fine grasp of scale and composition.
The painting is in fantastic condition, with no cracks or surface wear. The colours are bright and the painting is clean. The framing is likely original. The rear of the stretcher has the dimensions, 35cm x27cm and an anchor emblem stamped into the top stretcher. The frame does show typical wear to the gilt and black paint.
Overall a fine little painting from a known French artist. A very nice piece!

A Lovely use of colour and composition. The artist certainly had formal training, as the technique is well advanced. The paints are vibrant and show some signs of age, including cracks and a few very small spots of missing paint. There is a sketch on the back of the painting, with the name of the artist. There is a wire for hanging. Personally, I prefer the painting unframed.
YOUNG LADY WITH DOG
Signed and Dated 1938
A pre-WWII portrait of a lady seated in period clothing with a small dog. The painting is signed, but the name of the artist is hard to read. The painter obviously had formal training, as the proportions and composition are well thought out. It appears to have been created over several sittings, with many layers of paint present. It’s a vibrant painting in both colour and subject. The plaster copper leaf frame is complimentary to several details within the painting. The frame has a few small repairs to the plaster, which are blended in rather well and only noticeable with a close inspection. The frame measures 24″x31″.
I was told it was painted in Massachusetts. The subject in the painting is holding a cigarette, but be assured the painting itself has no offensive smells.
