A charming antique oil painting depicting the Madonna and Child, with a backdrop of architecture and a workman that looks decidedly British- there are considerable similarities to 20th Century artist Stanley Spencer's portrayal of biblical scenes in contemporary settings, painted in a semi-caricature style.
There's great warmth to the painting of mother and child, and a lot of skill evident in the rendition of faces, hands, feet and fabric. You'll see that the paint surface is crackled but it remains sound- there's a flaw in the surface to the upper left, and the rear view shows a patch repair on the back. The canvas is on a more recent stretcher, within a gilt frame probably 30 years old.
