A beautiful and charming oil on canvas by William Oliver. Piece entitled 'BLOWING BUBBLES' depicts two sisters each enjoying a pastime of blowing bubbles in an interior room. Honestly, I never thought about an artist painting bubbles before I saw this painting. Please take a look at the bubbles---quite a challenge I would think. The canvas is in excellent condition with just minor craquelure and no in-painting. Signed lower left and dated (1869?). William Oliver was a British painter (1823-1901) especially known for his painting of beautiful woman and children. Overall: 24" x 18 3/4" in a more modern frame. Reverse also retains the remnants of a previous owners label from Toronto, Canada
