A smiling housewife waving goodbye in the sunlit doorway of her home adds cheer and brightness to this large original oil painting. The artist gives us a small glimpse of the outdoor garden through the double doors as well as the interior with wood plank floors and period furnishings. Please take a moment to enlarge the photos and examine the details up close. Attributed to Georg Seligmann (1866-1924), the canvas is unsigned and mounted in a hardwood and gilt wood frame.
There is some flaking and paint loss at the bottom around the chair legs as well as some gilt and gesso loss to the frame.
