Folk art fox painting. Naive oil
A wonderful, naive, foxy painting.
This delicate oil on canvas looks to date from around the late 18th to mid 19th century. He is housed in his original wide frame which has wear and varnish blisters. The painting itself shows signs of age (fine crack oulining the stretcher below) but stable with no paint loss.
Folk art or naive school of art. Either way, he's fantastic.
