A very charming original oil board painting measuring 8 x 10 inches (actual painting size) in the original period frame. Signed by the artist in the lower right corner "Ripper" or "Rippen". A pleasing landscape scene of a mountain lake rendered with great color. The painting is in very good condition with no flaking. Does not appear to have any restorations or repairs. The surface of the painting has a little soiling typical of painting this old. Based on the style and materials, this work looks to date around 1910 give or take a few years. Ready to hang. You will not be disappointed with this little gem.
