Wonderful 18th to 19th Century Country Landscape w/ Figures & a Distant Steeple
The painting shows a young woman entering a gate, that leads to a church steeple in the distance. She walks a path through a lush forest towards the rolling open meadows.
Original oil on canvas. Canvas dimensions 30″ x 24″.
Frame dimensions 40″ x 34″.
Good antique condition. The painting shows craquelure throughout, and the frame is distressed. The back of the canvas shows a past repair, though this is not seen from the front.
The frame appears to be period to the painting and may have been gilded at some point. The frame has a rustic look without it’s gilding. The painting could benefit from a new frame, or hung as is.
