Very nice oil painting by the Belgian artist David Col (1822 - 1900).
Size: 57,5 x 47 cm - Gilded frame - Signed - Dated 1853
He was born in Antwerp and received his initial artistic training at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp with Nicaise De Keyser. His first solo exhibition came in 1846, and he gained immediately popularity with his mildly humorous scenes from daily life. His early works show the strong influence of Jean-Baptiste Madou and, especially, Ferdinand de Braekeleer.
He often collaborated with other artists, such as Constant Boon (1830–1882), who also did genre scenes, Eugène Remy Maes [nl], who painted farm animals (primarily chickens) and Henriëtte Ronner-Knip, who specialized in cats.
Col died in 1900 in Antwerp. His works may be seen in the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp and the Groeningemuseum in Bruges, as well as at various museums in Brussels, Chicago, Cincinnati, Montreal and Rostock. His paintings are still regularly sold at auction.
