A study of Jan Van Kessel’s ‘The continent of Africa’ Antwerp 1666.
A stunning, large oil on canvas in the mid to late 20th C.
Classical in style, depicting a lady of stature with a Lion & child in a romanesque setting. It has been painted to a good standard and was supposedly used as a theatre back drop for some time.
The attention to detail is exceptional and makes for wonderful viewing.
Overall it is in good condition, no rips or tears, there is some crazing and crackling starting to appear. A wonderful statement piece. It has wall mounting brackets and is ready to hang and enjoy.
