‘The Farmer’s Children’ After Theodore Gerard

$1,280

About

PRESENTING A HIGHLY DESIRABLE piece of Euro Art, namely ‘The Farmer’s Children’, oil on canvas in giltwood frame, after the famous Belgian Artist Theodore Gerard (1829-1895).. Very reminiscent or Old Master Works from the Netherlands. Unsigned…probably late 20th Century. Depicts what appears to be a mother (or older sister) standing in a doorway of a cottage watching her two children feed chickens (hens and cocks). All are in rustic period dress. A simple and serene rustic scene! ROMANTICISM. It is a large and imposing work of art, HIGHLY DECORATIVE and GREAT VALUE for money!!! Theodore Gerard was a Belgian Painter and was born in 1829 and he died in 1895. He was a painter and an engraver of genre scenes. He was a painter who got most of his inspiration from the Low Countries. In the year 1863, Gerard studied at the Ghent Academy and later moved to Brussels. He travelled a lot all around Germany and the Austro-Hungarian Empire exhibiting internationally. He was a reputed award winning genre painter from Belgian painter. He received medals in London (1871), Vienna (1873), Philadepphia(1870) and Brussels(1875). He also worked as a professor at the Brussels Academy of Fine Arts. Theodore Gerard paintings and art works have been represented in the Museum voor Schone Kunsten, the Coutrai Museum, Ghent and the Koninlijk Museum vooor Schone Kunsten, Antwerp. I have found his works very creative and he seemed to be one of the most talented genre artists of his time. .
