Table painting oil on canvas Art Deco period signed Verschaffelt (Édouard Verschaffelt 1874-1955) countersigned on the back by the artist and titled "Bou Saada". Beautiful orientalist composition where the artist deploys a free touch close to Impressionism depicting a family portrait featuring two Algerian women adorned with shimmering fabrics seated around a traditional activity in a typical home. The lovely young Berber in the foreground on the left is either spinning or preparing the meal around the kanoun, in reality she seems to be initiated by the older woman on the right who is positioned slightly behind in the scene as better observe and advise the gestures of this future pretty young woman with black eyes. Allegory of the ages of life is a universal theme that often comes up in the artist's work, our painting is a beautiful study like that of motherhood where Verschaffelt often represents the woman with the child as a Madonna in contemplation in front of his infant. Original frame in gilded wood, all in good condition, canvas slightly relaxed. Dimensions: 62 cm X 52 cm / sight 50 cm X 40 cm.
