Painting

"L'optique"   Peep Show

This is a very rare early French genre painting depicting a traveling vendor with his peep show in a country setting, with a mother and her children viewing the display titled "Le Vrai Jesus". Oil on canvas, 30 x 25 inches, overall frame size 41 x 36 inches, c. 1780s. This painting is unsigned, but it is exquisitely painted; the style and subject very reminiscent of the work of Louis Leopold Boilly (1761-1845). The painting was relined on aluminum and has some areas of inpainting, mostly the bottom edge and upper right, but overall is really quite presentable.
