Antique French Hunting Dogs Painting, 19th Century

This French, gilt framed, oil painting of two hunting dogs seeking their prey was done by Philippe Ledieu. It appears that the dogs have honed in on an area as they are both looking to the right.  They are in a heavily forested area with floral and foliate motifs.  The artist’s play on light in this painting is very good and you can also tell he was an expert in depicting dogs by their confirmation.  Surrounding the painting is a detailed giltwood frame with motifs in the corners and periphery of the inner frame. A brass plaque is at the bottom center of the frame with Ledieu stamped upon it. Philippe Ledieu (1805-?).

CONDITION: Good antique condition with craquelure, small losses and old restorations to frame
