The Night Market
This is a large fine mid-19th century oil painting of figures at a Northern European ‘Night Market’ by the eminent Belgian painter Andreas Franciscus Vermeulen (1821-1884). This highly atmospheric antique oil painting is signed by the artist and hangs in a good vintage Baroque style swept giltwood frame.
As with all of the original antique oil paintings we sell it is offered in the very finest condition it can be for its age having just been professionally cleaned, restored and re-varnished.
Andreas Franciscus Vermeulen lived and worked in Breda, Teteringen, and Nieuw-Vossemeer during the mid-19th century. Like Petrus van Schendel he became famous for his chiaroscuro market scenes of figures lit by moonlight and/or candlelight. Nocturnes by Vermeulen are represented in various major European museums.
