Holly Covets - 18th Century French Provincial Oil on Canvas Screen

By: Holly Echols • Jul 30, 2010 • 0 Comments

A classic antique restoration turns French, Provincial! It's this highly coveted piece in the exuberant collection of Yale Burge Antiques, Inc. that captures my attention this week... I marvel at this 18th century oil on canvas, ottoman port scene, which single handedly completes the ostentatiously designed interior of my dreams!  This oil painting was restored to a 4 panel screen and is classic of Louis XV or Rococo style furniture.  It's valued for its beauty and marquetry and can really open up a space as a design element, too.  Whether used as a room-divider sectioning off two areas, or simply to be showcased and admired as a work of art, the stylistic design of this fine antiquity is very well suited to the ambience of a French country residence.  To find out more, just ask the expert!  Specializing in English and French antiques, this Latique dealer really knows Continental and Colonial Craftsmanship! Until next week, Happy Latique!
