VUE DE BOCSTAD
-prise di cote de midi-
silk micro-embroidery, partially painted, of exceptional quality, dating back to the early 800s, depicting a view of Bocstad, Norway.

The canvas has its original antique wooden stretcher. The embroidery is very fine down to the smallest detail, and some parts, like the trees in the foreground, are three-dimensional. Some parts, such as the sky and the faces of the characters, are painted.

At the centre of the image is the historic BOCSTAD farm residence, depicted as it was at the time and which is currently a museum.

There is a small flaw on the upper left in the sky.
The frame and passepartout are of hight quality but not coeval, they were made in Florence in the 50s. Small chips.

Dimensions: wooden stretcher 47.5 x 42 cm, frame 65.5 x 52 cm.

From a private collection.
The photos are part of the description.
The twin embroidery, with title -La vue de Drammen- was also auctioned. Should the buyer win both works, they will have to pay for a single shipment.
Accurate and tracked shipping
