This gouache painting depicts a French casino scene and is signed “.. Forestier ‘88” and is likely to be attributable to Henri Claude Forestier, a Swiss painter who, typically, painted French scenes of this nature between 1875 and 1922. This is an extremely detailed painting in good condition with a pencilled inscription on the back which reads: "The Major turned in his chair and using the cash box probably with lithe hands dragged it out to Merchants group. " However please bear in mind that this is only a rough interpretation though the inscription was photocopied before framing and is displayed on the back of the picture for anyone to try to decipher. A well-executed piece that is a good example of one aspect of French social history at that time
