Original oil on canvas painting with a herd of elk resting in a green grove overseen by a single bull elk. Craqueluer is seen throughout the painting(visible in close up photos) but does not detract from the fine details of this beautifully executed nature scene. Canvas my benefit from cleaning which we leave to the discretion of the buyer. The painter, Carl Bartsch, signed the canvas in lower right section. Carl Frederick Bartsch was a Danish 19th Century painter who was born in 1829.The wod gilt frame shows old repairs with multiple small sections of carved trim glued back, while other sections of frame show minor loss and some small missing pieces and gilt scraped off. This original oil painting is sold as is, as we found it in Denmark.
