The Proposal of Marriage - Sold

attributed to Daniel Maclise R.A. (1806-1870) - Sold

The Proposal of Marriage - Sold

An extremely fine  mid 19th century oil painting on canvas depicting lavishly dressed figures in an opulent interior.  The improbable proximity of the suitor whilst his letter is read by his intended watched with excitement by her mother and sister countered by the rather dubious expression of father.  The treatment of the present work with it's strong use of reflected light and a great richness of colour is strongly reminiscent of Maclise's 'Hunt the Slipper at Neighbour Flamborough's' exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1841.  An exceptional of mid 19th century genre painting.  The painting is not signed.
