Genre Painting, Parting Lovers French, 19th Century Oil on Canvas
The painting depicting a scene of a couple, saying good-byes. The lady seated on a chair and wearing an elegant and elaborately crafted gown in the taste of 18th century.
A similar painting of this type is the well-known “The Black Brunswicker” (1860) by John Everett Millais (1829-1896). It was inspired partially by the exploits of the Black Brunswickers, a German volunteer corps who fought for the Napoleonic army during the Waterloo campaign.
This painting is currently at the Lady Lever Art Gallery in Port Sunlight, Merseyside, United Kingdom.
An inscribed note by the artist is attached to the back of the painting and certifies its creation.
The writing is very difficult to decipher and parts of it reads in French: “Je soussigné […] avoir peint Le tableau […] […] le oblige.
