Louis Simon Cabaillot Lassalle (1810-1870)
Estate of W.A. Ross MacFadden, Toronto
This work has all of the characteristics that prominent Toronto businessman and avid art collector, Ross MacFadden, admired in paintings. Flickering embers and campfire smoke where the children warm their hands are examples of the detailed realism that Mr. MacFadden greatly appreciated. This painting is accentuated by a beautiful signed gilt frame with glistening gold leaf.
