About this item

Antique French Original Oil on Canvas Painting

A very unusual painting depicting a battle worn knight, out of his suit of armour which hangs behind against the wall. He is naked apart from his being half covered by a sheet. Looking very gaunt he is presided over by two a cloaked monk holding a crucifix and what appears to be another knight holding a shield.

It is very stylised, almost cartoon like in style I love the composition and the dramatic colour palette with the shadows against the wall.

This was bought at a brocante in Provence, Southern France and looking at the the piece I would say it dates from the late 19th/early 20th century.

It is in good vintage condition for it's age with no rips or tears as such, there is a very small puncture hole near the second knights face and is also quite rough around the edges. Please see photographs.

Measuring: 64cm X 50cm.
