Dajou Oil Painting

Dajou was a French painter born in the 19th Century. This painting is a self-portait with two onlooking friends, and it has a strong resemblance to one of Dajou’s popular works, The Connoisseurs. This is a wonderful piece of art with the incredible detail of the paintings hanging on the back wall, the varied poses of the onlookers, the intricate design in the wood floor. The work is dated 1879, but the odd thing is that the attire of the onlookers predates this by about a century. Both the frame and the painting will be restored. Stay tuned for more. . .
