Oil on canvas laid down on board, the subject a gentle hillside, perhaps in early autumn, adjacent to a forest, the work measuring 6 1/2" by 4 1/2" (10 3/4" by 9" as framed), signed at bottom left by the noted Indiana and California impressionist painter FRANK J. GIRARDIN (1856-1945). This is a satisfying impressionistic work by a Kentucky-born artist who early in life painted in downstate Indiana, where he was a fixture in the early 20th century art colony, and who later in life painted in California. Most Girardin works are landscapes, painted in oil (see a pastel also, in my shop). See the net for more images of works by this impressionist artist. Condition is excellent. .
