Figures Strolling by a River, a House on the Heights

Oil on paper laid down on canvas and mounted on a chassis.

158 x 232 mm – 6 1/4 x 9 1/8 in.

 

This small anonymous study and its pendant, Horses and Carriage in Front of a Farm, a Willow Tree on the Right, are painted in an attractive and lively way. They demonstrate a deep sense of nature and a range of colors more evocative of the British school than the French. The artist’s particularly fluid touch here also reminds of British watercolor painters.

Condition report – Very good condition

160 x 230 mm – 6 5/16 x 9 1/16 in.

 

This anonymous study and its pendant, Figures Strolling by a River, a House on the Heights, display a bright and attractive touch, a deep sense of nature and a range of colors more evocative of the British school than the French. The artist has successfully combined different greens to evoke with poetry and soundness the shivering trees against the grey sky, almost stormy in the background.

Condition report – Good overall condition. A small loss in the upper right corner.
