About

This is a large fine 19th century oil on canvas depicting a pair of young Spanish girls with a guitar and tambourine resting in the shade by the eminent Royal Academy painter Thomas Kent Pelham (1831-1907). ‘Chicas Gitanas’ is signed by the artist and is the finest work by Thomas Kent Pelham that I have come across. As with all of the original antique oil paintings we sell it is offered in excellent condition, having just been cleaned and re-varnished.
