Gouache and watercolor on grayish tan paper, 7" by 9 1/2" inside the present mat (14 1/2" by 17" as framed), signed at lower left by listed French academy artist PIERRE FREDERIC LEHNERT (1811-?). This is a beautifully executed poetic drawing by an artist who showed at 19th century salons in Paris. From auction records it appears that studies of shepherds and sheep were a staple of the artist's production. Condition is excellent. Signature has aged in a way that caused several of the letters to have oxidized and they now appear almost as in a negative image (see closeups). SEE HUNDREDS OF OTHER WORKS IN MY RUBY LANE SHOP.
