Beautiful oil painting by German artist, August Mueller 1836-1885. Approximately 7 1/4" x 11" WITHOUT the frame and shadowbox. With the frame and shadowbox it measures 17" x 21". Wonderfully executed oil on board of two white chickens with a frog in their feeding bowl. Signed lower left, "Aug. Mueller, Munchen". Exhibition label on reverse. Mueller was born in Rottwell, Wurtemberg, January 13, 1836. Genre painter. Pupil of Stuttgart Art School under Rustige. He won several prizes and in 1865 settled in Munich. Even though frame is in shadowbox it is in need of repair. A few pieces broke off but are still inside shadowbox. This painting is very beautiful. It does not appear to have been out of the shadowbox but it looks like there may be some separation. Good condition.
