Hippolyte Camille Delpy (French, 1842-1910), "Bord de la Seine"-1901, oil on cradled wood panel, signed and dated lower right "H.C. Delpy", with label to verso "1262 bis". Serene, contemplative landscape painting with loose, quietly powerful brushwork and tonal qualities characteristic of Barbizon style, the painting depicting the Seine river at dusk with a fisherman tethering his boat to shore and another fisherman in his boat rowing upstream. Framed approximately 27.25" x 39". Unframed approximately 19" x 30.5". Note: Copy of purchase invoice from Fine Art Advisor Alanna Rathbone (Connecticut) available upon request.
Overall excellent condition. Painting has cradled verso. Paint surface is stable, with scattered craquelure throughout. Some paint loss to edges commensurate with frame rubbing. Under black light examination, no apparent signs of repair or in-painting.
