Signed by Artist lower leftThis is the Signed original Oil painting by Fortunino Matania.
An exquisite oil painting by Matania depicting the arrival of a guest at a country house during Regency times. Two servants stand by the sedan chair as the lord of the manor descends the steps of the great house with his female companions to greet the guest.
The garden and building as well as the costumes are painted with exact and accurate detail, a trademark of the master artist. This particular sumptuous work was probably painted as a special private commission or for a magazine illustration.
