RESERVED**Stunningly atmospheric painting of a gun dog and prey from the early 1800's signed in the lower left L. Combes in what appears to be its original gilt frame.  Here, the artist has given us a smooth canvas enhanced by the lovely old gilt frame.  A dog, possibly a setter or spaniel lies triumphant at the edge of the water and looks proudly at the artist with his prey in his mouth.  It's very traditional and incredibly attractive.
