Oil on canvas, 21" by 15 3/4" (24" by 19 1/2" as framed), unsigned, the subject an Austrian, Swiss, or German village in deep snow on a brilliant sunny day. The sharp peak in the background center could be the Matterhorn, in which case we could assume the subject is Zermatt, Switzerland. I'd guess the age of the work as circa 1950's. On the stretcher someone has written "AUSTRIA (TIROL) cca 1950". Condition is good with just light rippling at upper left where the canvas wraps around or is in contact with the stretcher. There is light surface soiling. A horizontal white streak at lower right center in the base of the wood house is actually the artist's white paint, and not missing paint. The frame has some wear and bright yellow spots show through from underneath. A silvery gray or possibly even black frame might enhance the painting further. All in all this is a nicely executed work by an artist of talent. .
