Rabbit and poachers satchel painting

French, oil on canvas painting, dated 1934 and signed, J Lefevre.

This wonderful, large scale painting is a truely lovely spontaneous piece of work. Titled "Braconnage' (Poaching) it depicts a poachers satchel and rabbit. Dated 1934, a time when food was not plentiful and a rabbit would have made a good family meal. I love the use of rich colour, the splashes of violet on the ears and the bold orange tones in the satchel. It would make a stunning piece on a cottage wall or in a boot room.

In good condition, the paint and canvas are stable, there are some pin holes and scuffs consistent with age.

I trained in theatre design at University and have, for the past thirty years, been self employed as a mural and trompe l'oeil artist, as well as working alongside my husband Peter, of Arabesque Antiques, mostly in careful restoration, occasionally giving my opinion.

Perhaps, given my previous experience, it's natural that my new venture embraces art, and I am excited to be branching out into dealing in art and paintings.

I buy works I would like to own personally, where in my opinion the artist has shown skill with texture, colour and composition.

Hopefully others will love them too.
