Antique French Bulldog Oil Painting Harry Lyman Dog Portrait American Art 1910
An antique French Bulldog Oil Painting by listed American sporting artist Harry Lyman, signed and dated 1910. This is a rare and early portrait of a French Bulldog in a decorative harness, possibly a show dog. The bulldog has a white chest and the coat appears to be a dark brindle or black. Good condition overall and the portrait is well rendered. Last 6 pictures taken outside in full sunlight. Areas of normal soiling to canvas surface, some craquelure, very small areas of paint loss but mostly spots of grime to varnish, small scratches. Has not been examined under UV but i do not see any large areas of in painting. No rips or patches to canvas and the canvas has NOT been relined. It has been restretched at one point, you can see the older nail holes in canvas that align with the holes on the stretcher.
Housed in a giltwood frame in overall good condition, areas of chipped gesso/gilt loss on all four sides. I could only post 2 photos. Need more pictures of frame?
