Pair of French 18th Century Hand-Painted Decorative Panels with Fruits and Birds

A pair of French 18th century hand-painted decorative panels with birds in foliage motifs. Each of this pair of French panels features a simple silhouette adorned with a bonnet top and rhythmically adorned with a delicate decor of foliage and birds. Standing out on a neutral background, graceful volutes painted in a grey color, seem to be playing the role of branches to support the silver vases adorned with cherries and various foliage. This theme is reprised four times on each panels, thus creating a perfectly harmonious rhythm. The panels are painted on stretched canvas over wooden frames while the sides are painted in a gilded color. With its delicate and elegant subject, this pair of French 18th century hand-painted panels will be a great decorative choice for any wall, perhaps placed above a pair of demilune tables or chests-of-drawers.
