Early 1900

$296.92

About

Scenography - Décor Acte I is an interesting theatrical scenography drawn around the mid-20th century by an anonymous set designer, presumably French. On the lower center, “Décor Acte I” is written in pencil. The state of preservation is good, except for some rips of the paper on the higher right and lower left corners and on the right of the paper. On the higher corners and on the lower left of the back, there are remnants of darker paper the drawing was formerly glued on. The image is well-drawn and presents a perspectival view on a wide mansard environment, in wood, containing on the left a lit table with a seated figure. On the background, there is a piano and some other spread objects of furniture, among which a heater. A sleigh is hung on the wall, whilst a canoe, a net, and a sail on the ceiling. The whole suggests a specific setting, Nordic and adventurous. An engaging scenario, rendered in a pleasant way and with great inventiveness and virtuosity. This artwork is shipped from Italy. Under existing legislation, any artwork in Italy created over 70 years ago by an artist who has died requires a licence for export regardless of the work’s market price. The shipping may require additional handling days to require the licence according to the final destination of the artwork.
