“Le diner des Rats” oil on canvas signed Armand Manuel and dated 1878. This painting was done in France late in the 19th century. We liked the humor, admittedly dark, and the quality of this painting. An elegantly set table attended by two plump rats. Animal art was a popular in France and this not so subtle painting about the politics of the moment is strangely enough appropriate for the moment. The painting has been cleaned, relined and varnished. It is in beautiful condition.
