Gouache on paper painting of an idyllic tropical scene in Asia, vegetation towering above a central thatched hut, six figures in the foreground and a grazing water buffalo at lower right, signed at lower left J. P. Geoffory-Dechaume and dated there 58. The painting measures 19 3/4" by 24" and is in a black strip frame with faux bamboo pattern. Most likely the scene pictured is in Southeast Asia but we do not know where. Research to date has not turned up a listed artist by this name, though a google search has revealed that a J. P. Geoffory-Dechaume was evidently an illustrator of travel books in the mid 1950's, having contributed to a work on Mexico and the Caribbean. This was found in Connecticut. Excellent fresh condition.
