Late 18th century, Napoleonic and Federal period.  A rare example of Industrialism art which later, contributed to Impressionism. The top hand painted in an industrial scene, with a three story factory spewing smoke from twin stacks, and further buildings. In the foreground, a plowed field is juxtaposed. Industrialism in art grew from the Industrial Revolution (C.1760-1820) and took many forms from the representation of production workers to industrial factories in bucolic settings. A common element was the smoke spewing stacks, often among familiar urban scenes. Black papier mache, 2 5/8”. Small damages as shown. A rare example of original pre Impressionist art.
