Oil on canvas extensive landscape of trees, a body of water, hills and distant structures, 24" by 36" (31" by 43" in gold frame), signed at lower left "Emile Bovard". I suspect this to be a pen name for a talented artist as I see no listing for an Emile Bovard. The painting was likely executed in the 1970's or 1980's I would judge, from the materials and technique. The artist has created a good-sized and highly decorative work, with pleasing muted colors, the violets, lilacs, pinks, blues and greens dominating. The gold framing together with the painting makes for a most attractive combination. The painting needs to be nailed back into the frame (will be shipped outside of it, for safety). The art is a little dusty, but otherwise ready for display. .
