An original painting
by Wilson Bigaud
36 inches x 24 inches
Oil on Masonite; Framed.
Framed size: 42 inches x 30 inches
In this large, meal-time scene, cocks fight, a dog barks, chickens run around, and a woman is in labor, yet everyone—including the woman in labor—seems calm and relaxed.
Condition: Very good in a custom black frame. The center of the masonite is slightly bowed out.
Provenance: Kristina Barbara Johnson Collection
