18th Century primitive antique oil painting of aristocratic child with dog. This sort of painting is said to have been painted retrospectively to show a wealthy individual as a child, presumably in a situation more grand than the one in which they were really brought up. This would explain that the face looks more like that of an adult, as well as the garden and fountain which look like that of a very large country house. In any case this would have been an expensive commission for someone of great importance, or at least great wealth, at the time. All in all a charming piece of social history in a very good frame.

Dutch or French circa 1770
