[unattributed, Italian school]
The celebration, ca.1870
Oil on canvas
17 x 26 inches [unframed] | 22 x 31 inches [framed]
Good overall condition. Was relined in the 1940s or 1950s. Appears to have minor in-painting along the edge but it is covered by the rabbits the frame.
Possibly a study for a much larger painting.
