Painting

Children's Battle

A lovely oil on canvas depicting children playing war games. The image is unsigned but we are attributing this painting to the French artist, Pierre Edouard Frere. Sight size measures 10 x 7 7/8 inches and is housed in a period gilt frame measuring 13 1/2 x 11 3/4 inches. Frere was known for his images of children, usually of the lower classes, experiencing the joys and struggles of their very young lives.
