Oil on canvas, 27" by 39" (32 1/2" by 44 1/2" as framed), the scene a deep blue lake with small boats and a dock, puffy clouds filling the sky on a peaceful summer day. It's an expansive scene, large enough to invite the viewer to feel he is a part of it. I suppose the work is Swedish or Danish. The artist chose to sign with just the conjoined initials "HM" at lower left, where it is also dated 1948. Condition: because of evident past moisture exposure, there is flaking of the paint at right that will need restoration. The flaking and instability ranges from two or three inches from right edge in the top portion to about seven inches in the lower portion. Cleaning would be beneficial as well. If this scene appeals to you then by all means invest in restoration to bring it back to perfect viewing condition. The frame is gold and of the period and shows some wear especially at bottom. Ask for more photos of the flaking paint areas. .
