Delicate 18th Century Watercolor Painting Of ‘La Charite’ or ‘Giving Charity’.
Popular in the mid to late eighteenth Century, ‘Giving Alms’ or ‘Charity’ usually showed well meaning ladies handing out alms to destitute mothers and their children.
The two ladies depicted in this rather ‘naïve’ representation are dressed in the typical attire found at the cusp of the French Revolution.
Presented in a simple gilt wood round wood frame, it is charming.
The painting has a 7.25 inches diameter.
The wood frame has a 9.50 diameter.
