Linen backed vintage poster known as: "Queen of Rich Arabia" Wording along the top in Swedish is: Konung (King) Salomon / Salomon (1675-1677). Signed with initials AES.
The rustic design or artwork in the style of the 1600-1700's in Sweden of 'gentile' people is supposed to be painted in 1826..
This image was uncovered under wall paper (along with other historic paintings) at a farmhouse. The initials on the old farmhouse foundation were inscribed AES. Upon the restoration of the house, eight Dala paintings were found. They covered the walls of one
room and had been hidden behind layers of wallpaper. Five of the paintings were the work of Snarf Anders Andersson from Ullvi, Leksand (born 1795, died
1850). He was a master in the art of Dala paintings. The three other paintings are the work of Iwares from Rowgärdet, Rättvik. One of them is the
biggest in the collection, The Queen of Rich Arabia Travels to King Solomon.
Linen backed and in excellent condition.
