The painting is overall in good condition, showing small, retouched paint losses to the area of the sky, minor abrasion and craquelure. The paint surface is minimally stained. The frame comes with slight traces of usage.
Marcel Cogniet (1857-1914)
Born in Paris, Marcel Cogniet exhibited several times at the Salons du Cercle Rue Boissy-d'Anglais. He painted views of Paris and Venice, especially balconies with flowers, sailboats in the lagoon of Venice, and islands in the haze. Most of the paintings show a loose and a post-impressionist brushwork. (cko)
