A well rendered interior forest scene on old academy board. Nice use of color and a very pleasing composition. Signed by the artist lower right. Lots of bright greens and a nice sense of depth. In all, a charming little painting with lots to offer by this well regarded American / Chicago painter.

AskArt Biographical Information: Frank Peyraud earned a lasting reputation for rural landscapes, especially snowscenes in broadly defined forms and glowing colors.  Excepting a trip from 1921 to 1923 to Italy and Switzerland, he was based in Chicago, where a Registrar of the Chicago Art Institute in a materials for a traveling exhibition, described him as the "dean of Chicago landscape artists." (Richter) 

Peyraud was one of the first American painters to focus on Midwestern landscape, and did many river and farm scenes including his signature snowscapes. Many of his paintings reflected Impressionism, an abstract style executed with rapid technique and broken brush strokes brought over from France towards the end of the 19th Century.
