French, oil on canvas painting, dated 1934 and signed,  J Lefevre.

This wonderful, large scale painting is a truly lovely spontaneous piece of work. Titled "Braconnage' (Poaching) it depicts a poachers satchel and rabbit. Dated 1934, a time when food was not plentiful and a rabbit would have made a good family meal. I love the use of rich colour, the splashes of violet on the ears and the bold orange tones in the satchel. It would make a stunning piece on a cottage wall or in a boot room.

In good condition, the paint and canvas are stable, there are some pin holes and scuffs consistent with age.
