19th Century French

Dawn on the Seashore

This is an atmospheric 19th Century French painting attributed to Maxime Emile Louis Maufra (1861-1918). Oil on canvas, 8 3/4 x 14 inches, c. 1890s, unsigned, with a label on the back identifying the painting as Maufra's, framed. There is also a stamp on the back of the canvas "Blanchet 20 Rue Saint [Benoit?] Paris", a well known 19th century artist supply store. Although we cannot be certain of the artist, this is a well painted seascape with a subtle palette and lovely sense of light and atmosphere, and certainly appears to have been done by a very competent hand.

Chevaux au Repos

This is a beautiful original 19th century etching, possibly after a painting by French Barbizon artist Charles-Francois Daubigny. The image size is 7 3/4 x 5 1/8, unsigned, on a watermarked laid type paper. There is an inscription in French in the lower margin attributing this etching to Daubigny, but we were unable to find this image in the catalog of Daubigny's etchings.
