Painted Screen Directoire
Four-panel painted screen Directoire. French, late 18th / early 19th century…
Each panel painted with a grotesque of classical inspiration, with floral and vase motifs. Polychrome designs painted on a pale green ground. Each panel presents the same overall design, yet each contains unique flower and bouquet compositions.
Oil on canvas, mounted on wooden stretchers. Panels connected with two-way articulating hinges. Each panel also fitted with wire for hanging (should you wish to dis-assemble and hang as paintings – see photos). Outside edges finished in brass tacks.
A very decorative piece.
