For your shopping consideration is a circa 1880s, Early Americana original oil painting. It was rendered on canvas depicting the interior of a rustic home or cabin. It's as if you stepped into a time machine and landed in the interior of someone's home. The focal point is a blazing open fire with such warmly painted artistry, you can hear its crackling embers. You can smell the meat stew brewing in the cast iron pot. Your eye will follow every detail of the mantel objects, the pottery and dishes in the cupboard, the chime of the grandfather clock....right down to the the tiny portrait with curled edges pinned to the wall over the fireplace. These are only a few examples of the amazing detail you will see in this work of art.
This painting exemplifies the simplicity of a bygone era. It measures 27" wide and 21" high and retains its original, primitive wood frame. It is in very good condition with wear, appropriate for age, and overall very nice. The canvas is without tears and we don't see major paint loss. Interestingly, it is without an artist's signature, but the artist's talent is clearly visible in this well-executed work. This is an endearing image of an early home interior, incredibly detailed with the workmanship of a fine artist.
