At first glance this appears to be a 17th century Dutch landscape oil on panel by someone like Ruisdael, Hobbema, Cuyp, Van Goyen, or other famous artists of that time and place. Closer examination reveals that this is actually a late 20th century work in that style, signed at lower right by artist J M GRISWOLD. I do not see information on the artist but he or she was clearly familiar with 17th century Dutch art. The work is on masonite and measures 11 3/4" by 16" (17 1/2" by 21 1/2" as framed). There are a few off-scale figures in blue clothing, including one on a horse, but they are very small and lost in the overall composition. From normal viewing distance they are negligible. Condition is excellent. The frame has one missing piece at lower right and a piece at lower left, shown photographed in place, is loose and needs to be glued on. This is a most decorative classic work and that will enhance many types of interiors.
