Now priced well below what I have into it. A very nice mid/ late 1800's rendering of Jean Antoine Watteau's famous painting Le Faux Pas (The Mistaken Advance) 1717 that hangs in the LOUVRE Museum, Paris, France. This painting is signed LANGLET in the lower left corner and attributed to ERNA LANGLET of Swedish/Dutch descent. The painting measures 15.25" x 14" and weighs 3.5lbs with the frame.It was originally on a different backing and then later added to an American style stretcher at another time. There is some light paint loss from a prior cleaning and there are impressions from the canvas sagging on the stretcher over time. The surface is tidy and the color is still very vibrant. All of the original fine detail is still in full view. It is slightly darker than the original featured in the last photo but very well done and beautiful unto itself. A very commendable likeness of a well known work in the Baroque and Rococco styles by the French master Antoine Watteau. This is a great opportunity to own an affordable rendition of a priceless painting that hangs in one of the finest museums in the world.
Please see all photos for exact details. Only the work shown in the gold frame is for sale. The original in the white frame is only used for reference and comparison.
