French 18th Century Framed Still-Life Oil Painting with Bouquet and Parakeet

A French framed oil on canvas still-life painting from the 18th century, depicting a bouquet of flowers and a parakeet. Born in France during the Age of Enlightenment, this lovely oil painting of vertical format features a luscious bouquet of pink, red and white flowers, set inside a classical vase. Perched next to the vase and looking at us from the side as birds typically do, a lovely parakeet brightens up the right side of the composition with its soft yellow and grey green plumage, accented with a bright red dot. Standing out beautifully on a neutral brown background, this scene touches our hearts with its calm elegance and gentle depiction. Set inside a carved giltwood frame with egg-and-acanthus molding, this French 18th century still-life oil on canvas painting of vertical format, will enliven any wall beautifully, perhaps hung above a chest-of-drawers, console table or side table.
