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.
