Great 19th century painting signed Henri Bidauld

Fabulous French painting from the second half of the 19th century. Oil painting on canvas, first canvas fixed on a wooden panel, depicting a popular subject, Laundresses at the river. Typical representation of the realist current where workers are depicted in real contexts, the artists in fact wanted to free themselves from bourgeois taste and academic subjects. Furthermore, there is no attempt to dignify their effort, they are concrete men and women. Artwork of exceptional size, ideal for placing in a large living room or studio, for antique dealers and interior decorators. 20th century carved and gilded wooden frame that has undergone a restoration with resumption of the gilding in some points (see photo). Painting of great pictorial quality, the color contrast with the wooded background and the characters in the foreground is amazing. Artwork signed H. Bidauld on the bottom right (see photo) attributable to the French painter Henri Bidauld (1839-1898), lacking authentication. Monumental painting, probably born to be presented in an important art exhibition during the second half of the 19th century. Framework that has undergone a conservative restoration with application on a wooden panel to facilitate the drafting of the canvas during the 20th century. In good condition, with some signs of the time. Sight size H 160 W 250 cm
