A Colorful Albert-Joseph Penot (1862-1930) Signed 19th Century Oil on Canvas entitled The Cardinal After His Meal No. 3195

The Cardinal After His Meal, A Colorful 19th Century Oil by Albert-Joseph Penot (1862-1930). The signed painting depicts a cardinal in traditional vibrant vestments, standing in an interior setting beside a dinner table heaped with fruit, cakes, and wine. The piece is highly reminiscent of Penot’s A Reclining Cardinal sold at Sotheby’s London on May 13, 1998, lot 389.
