Object Description

This elegant walnut easel is a collectable antique which can be used to practice or display art on. The easel was crafted in France in the 19th Century, when it became popular for artists to work outdoors (‘en plein air’). The easel allowed painters to easily carry their equipment outside and set-up wherever they pleased. This method of working directly from nature was favoured by the Impressionist artists, among others.

The easel is of tripod design, being supported on three legs. The front two legs terminate at their tops in elegant scrolls. They are fitted with a horizontal shelf, upon which the canvas is placed. This shelf can be adjusted in height, along with the top bar, to fit the size of the canvas.
