Fantastic original oil on canvas painting signed in the lower right corner "Marie Hauge". Measures 22 by 17 1/2 inches. Offered unframed. Well done landscape complete with cottage, mountains and a figure in the foreground. Nice bright colors. I estimate this work to be circa 1895-1910. The painting is in good condition, minor chip in the paint surface toward the top center edge (see photo). The canvas would benefit from a light cleaning and new varnish. Found in a Virginia basement a few years ago, covered with dust. Marie Hauge is a listed artist in Davenports and Benezit. Born in 1864, Drammen, Norway. Celebrated Norwegian painter, known for landscapes. Exhibited at the highly important Salon des Independants (Paris, France) in 1904 and 1906. Properly framed this painting would really shine.
