Pair of oil paintings by Joseph De Ruysscher of deer
Set of two oil on board paintings of deer in the woods, by Joseph De Ruysscher. Painted around 1870s. They come in custom wood frames that have been modified with modern hooks. These are beautifully done and he was clearly a accomplished artist.
Some of his other paintings that I have researched have dates of 1863 on them, so these were probably done around 1870's.
One is signed lower right hand side. The other one is not. They have been together and framed the same for a long time, so we assuming the artist never finished the one but clearly has done both.
I'm showing the back sides because you can see the old beveled wood and how it was aged. At one time there was tape to hold the paintings down.
