Large 19th Century French Boiserie Painting on Canvas: 'Angelique et Medor'

This massive and resplendent antique French Panel Painting once graced a boiserie or wooden paneled room.  The scene is that of Angelica and Medoro, a theme of Romantic painters that was repeated from the 16th century to the 19th century. Angelique and Medor were characters in the Italian epic, Orlando Furioso. Angelique was a princess in the court of Charlemange ("The Father of Europe"), while Medor was a Moorish Knight. The carvings in the tree was also a theme that was seen in many of the Romantic paintings, dating all the way back to the late 1500s.

This particular painting on canvas is very large, and was painted in the 1800's. It would have been inset into a framed area of the paneled wall.  In addition to Angelique and Medor, we see a festive outdoor garden scene, maybe the 'court of Charlemagne'.  Garden elements and foliage are seen throughout the entire panel painting. On one of the tree trunks, is writing in old French. The translation: "Angelique commits her heart, Medor is the winner, how happy he is, She has fulfilled his wish"

This massive boiserie panel painting will be the highlight any room it is placed in.

Condition: Old water marks, uneven borders which would have been inset into the boiserie frame; minor abrasions to paint; splitting to canvas in areas.
