Description: An exceptional example of the artist's best work. Very well done winter scene with a bit of an impressionist flavor. Very subtle colors and nice detail. Reminiscent of a hunting or deer camp in the north woods. Hard to go wrong with this beauty. One of the best Royer paintings I have ever seen offered for sale.
Condition: Very good condition. Nice stable paint surface. Frame has a few nicks and chips here and there, but is in great shape for its age.
