Oil on board painting of a peaceful lake surrounded by forest and peaks in the distance, 11" by 18" (16 1/4" by 23 1/2" in wood frame), unsigned, circa late 1940's to 1950 or so, but executed in an earlier style that goes back to the early years of the century. These freely executed impressionistic works met the demand for affordable original art in the first half of the 20th century, and many are still around, though they have suffered the ravages of time. This example is very clean and in generally good condition, with just a barely noticeable pressure crinkle extending vertically from lower left center edge. A little sanding and re-staining of the lightly worn frame would enable you to not have to spend for another frame. Overall, a nice addition to vacation home, lake cabin, and other rustic domicile.
