This superlative oil painting depicts a 19th century farm house country kitchen interior with supper on the fireplace and the late afternoon sun shining in through a flower-decorated window. Such delightful works represented a resurgence in the rural life genre that started in an early part of the 19th century. Survives with its original gold frame in superb condition, that achieved lovely patina over the last century.
