Charming scene of a festive inn depicting men standing up from a table, with roses in their hands, to greet a smiling lady holding a wicker basket on her hip. A vase on the blue checked tablecloth, a jostled chair is on the floor next to a playful little cat and a cat drinking its milk. Lots of details in this rustic and warm interior. A pleasant painting. Oil on mahogany panel. Signed lower right. Antique frame.

Size : H 48cm x W 38cm – H 66cm x W 57cm

Belgian school of the 2nd part of the 19th century

Lit : A meticulous painter of anecdotal genre scenes, Gerard was a pupil of his father Jan (originally from Amsterdam) and a student at the Antwerp Academy. He started painting in 1875 and was inspired by the bourgeoisie and the nobility. In some of his works, they are similarities with Jean-Baptiste Madou. He sublimates the details and transmits the emotion of his subjects.
