Oil on canvas French landscape painting of a traditional home at the edge of a pond in mid summer, 20 1/2" by 17 1/4" (24 1/2" by 21" framed in older gold interesting frame), signed at lower right corner J. D. Prenne or possibly J.De Prenne. I do not see a listing for that name as spelled but will continue to search. The painting is very nicely executed and pleasing to the eye; it's a very relaxing and calming view. Gathering clouds lend an ominous touch, so perhaps a summer storm is about to break; the sun has gone behind the clouds. Condition is sound though a cleaning would be nice and there is no varnish. I would guess the age as about 1940 to early 1950's but I suppose it could be older. SEE HUNDREDS OF OTHER WORKS OF ART NOW IN MY SHOP.
