French 1900s Oil Painting Depicting a Pointer Standing at the Edge of the Woods

A French oil on canvas painting from the early 20th century depicting a pointer dog in the woods, in giltwood frame. Created in France during the Turn of the Century which saw the transition between the 19th to the 20th, this oil on canvas painting depicts a brown and white coated pointer, standing at the edge of the woods. The tail, ears and position of the head reveal that his attention is drawn to a scene invisible to us. Two birch trees on the left seem to be echoing his coat. The upper left section of the composition opens to the overcast sky. The warm palette is made of brown and yellow tones contrasted with green. Unsigned, the painting is set inside an elegant giltwood frame adorned with carved beads and gadroons, surrounding acanthus leaves and fluted motifs. With its warm colors and skillful depiction, this French oil on canvas dog painting circa 1900 will make for a wonderful addition to any home, placed above a side table, a commode or a buffet.
