Description

An impressive hunting oil painting, presented in an ornate gilt frame. The painting is unsigned and painted on board.

There is some text fixed to the reverse reading: "Oil Painting on Board of Gundogs. This oil painting dates to 1909 and formed part of a huge hunting mural which covered one entire wall of a large mansion near Llandeilo. There was a fire in the 1980's and most was destroyed save for this piece, the bottom left hand corner. As intended for a wall mural, the brushstrokes are board and is best viewed at a distance of, say, 10 feet. The mural was signed Dario Rossetti who was presumably a visiting Italian artist as there is no one of that name recorded in British censuses, births, deaths, marriage etc".
