Early 20th Century Painting of a Racing Pigeon

A fantastic antique painting from Early 20th century France. The work depicts a single pigeon that has been banded. The pigeon is a racing pigeon. Beginning in England and Belgium during the 19th century, pigeon racing quickly caught on and spread throughout Western Europe. The painting has aged wonderfully, creating a patina that is simply wonderful. Signed and dated by artist. Oil on wood.
