FINE ART INVESTMENTS SINCE 1978
Title: "Ancient Wine Port at Toulouse"
Medium: Original Oil on Canvas
Framed Size: 30" X 34"
From the BENEZIT DICTIONNAIRE: "CARPENTER (G.) peintre de paysages; exposa en 1831 et 1832 a la Royal
Academy et e la British Institution a Londres" which translates from French to English to "Landscape painter;
exhibited in 1831 and 1832 at the Royal Academy and the British Institution in London."
On back: "CARPENTER (G.) peintre de paysages; exposa en 1831 et 1832 a la Royal Academy et e la British Institution a
Londres (Ecole anglaise). L'ancien port aux vins a Toulouse, n'extise plus actuellement." This painting is especially
interesting because not only is it wonderfully well done, but this scene of a historical Wine Port in Toulouse is a place
that does not exist today anymore. There is superb fine detail on from close up gentlemen and barrels to even every
distant character strolling or working on the ships. One can utilize a magnifying glass to study this grand work of art.
