Charles Gabriel Harpsau (British, 1885-1910). His paintings have rarely been seen outside of Britain, and, indeed, he was not very prolific in his short life. This is reprsentative of his best work; a scene with cows and peaceful landscape. The little girl may not be noticed at first glance, but she is a central figure in the painting. Why is she there, so small? Why a girl among huge cows? Ahhh, the secret of fineart is to bring in the viewer, and have his imagination and curiosity give pleasure.
