Antique oil painting on canvas of a St Bernard dog

Antique oil painting on canvas of a St Bernard dog

This listing is for a stunning antique oil painting on canvas of a St Bernard dog. A very handsome turn of the century portrait in a semi classical style, the detail and shading really emphasize the noble pose of the St Bernard. Mounted in a very decorative antique gilt frame with a pronounced molded gesso leaf border. This painting most likely dates back to the Victorian era.


Approximate dimensions:
Canvas: 36cm x 27cm (14” x 10.5”)
Frame: 47.5cm x 39cm (18.75” x 15.5”)

This painting is in good antique condition and ready to display. There are some very old small patch repairs to a few spots on the reverse of the canvas. Some age cracks are present in the paint.
The antique wooden frame with gilt gesso has some minor scuffing and marks commensurate with age but no significant damage or chips and displays very nicely.
