circa: Early 1900s
A colorful framed oil on canvas painting of a beach scene signed P. Denison, circa 1900. Loosely painted with great sensitivity to color and light, the artist captures a moment when two women are walking into the sea as a seated crowd looks on. The crowd is in full dress, with peticoats, hats and umbrellas, hemmed in between the water and buildings in the near background. The pair entering the water have donned their turn of the century bathing suits and are holding hands. A large French flag waves in the background. Signed P. Denison in the lower right corner. The gilt frame is carved resembling overlayed pine cone petals with floral medallions interspersed throughout.
Condition: Very good. Minor age wear and fading on frame. Some parts have been reglued. Minor wear on painting.
