Large Antique Canvas Painting from France, Early 1900s

Before The Hunt

This large antique French painting depicts a gathering of people and hunting dogs on the grounds of a large and impressive chateau. There are men and a woman on horses surrounded by hunting dogs.  Two men and a woman are in front of a huge stone pedestal holding a large statue. This large painting was probably a panel painting from a boiserie or wooden paneled room. Its frame would have been either the molding designed for the entire room or a very simple wooden frame. It may be hung as is or inset into a frame.  It is signed somewhat indistinctly in the lower right hand corner, P. Mail. This painting will be the focal point of any room it is placed.

CONDITION: Good condition; Edges of canvas have been slip stitched in  areas at bottom. Minor fray to edges as seen in photos. If framed, edges could be folded under. Some minor wrinkling.
