DescriptionEMILE MUNIER (French 1810-1895)
Apple Pickers, 1890
Oil on canvas
46 x 25 inches (116.8 x 63.5 cm)
Signed and dated lower left: E. Munier 1890
Stamp verso: E. Renoux, Paris
This painting by Munier dates to the painter's time spent in Auvergne, where his genre scenes focused upon women and children in country settings. These sentimental subjects proved to be very popular. This sweet portrayal of two affectionate children ultimately has its artistic roots in the work of William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905), though without the erotic charge characterizing most of the latter's imagery.
Original canvas, strengthening to lower left corner (not near signature), and to the face of the child, thick varnish, otherwise condition commensurate with age.
