An earthy, rustic picture of a rural landscape painted in oil onto board. The artist shows off his painterly technique, using broad, expressive, and textured brushwork to paint the rural landscape in all its glory. He has managed to capture the raw quality of the provincial scene through his use of colours, strokes and textures.
Our eyes are at first drawn to the cottage, but are then directed upwards to the sky and then to the green trees on the left. Finally we are left to rest on the lower section of the picture, where the artist has softened the palette and loosened the sections, creating an almost abstract composition.
The painting is housed in its original wide profile mid century frame, which is of as much character as the painting itself. It has a linen covered border and and inner gilt and wood window. The painting is in excellent vintage condition. The gilt edging on the frame has some minor scuffing but otherwise the frame is in good and stable condition overall.
Size: 43×54 cm (including frame)
