Fabulous painting. Happy T Day, Valerie
...dark and moody.
This looks like a nice painting, one of calm & routine. I can imagine sitting down to tea & toast at this table.
This paining is beautiful. I'm not familiar with the artist -- thanks for sharing it.
Setting the table with tablecloth and flowers. My crew is lucky they get food on a paper plate 😸 Happy T Day
Lovely painting-a look into the past love these Happy T wishes Kathy
a beautiful looking table. Love the warm rich colors in these paintings. Happy T day!
It's great to find interesting paintings of food-related subjects, other than the common still-life paintings. My favorites are those by the great Dutch painters.best... mae at maefood.blogspot.com
And I wonder what the maids got to eat and where...Makes one appreciate we live today (minus Covid...)
SO beautiful. I have never seen this one.Happy Tea Day,Kate
That table is far more beautiful than the one I set for Thanksgiving. I love that fresh flowers were used. Thanks for sharing another artist of whom I was unfamiliar. Thanks for making it a T Tuesday post, too.
This is such a serene piece. It looks like morning, everyone getting ready for the family breakfast. That's my interpretation, and I like it. Hope it was a wonderful T day Nita. Hugs-Erika
Lovely painting. These people must have been very rich to have three maids setting up the table. He was a very tallented artist. TFS. Happy T-day!
What a lovely painting. I've not heard of this artist but the whole picture exudes calm. Even though they are clearly laying the table for 6 people and putting warm (I assume) bread rolls on the plates. The flowers are beautiful. Are the girls servant girls? Or the daughters of the house? Having three servants would be unusual, so I'm thinking daughters. A family with lots of women of course would have such an amount of beautiful flowers on the table. The cupboard on the left is a linen cupboard. A friend of mine has an antique (French) one and I recognize it.Sorry I'm late,Happy T-Day,Hugs,Lisca
This is truly beautiful.
Those were the days - when setting the table was an art. We only set two places ..and no tablecloth just mats. I suppose it's better than one of my sons - who never sits at a dining table unless there's company! Belated Happy T Day, Chrisx
