Oil on canvas, 16 1/4" by 12 3/4", in an old master style but of mid to late 19th century date, showing a house, tree and dogs and travelers, signed at lower left by noted, auctioned artist PIERRE LOUIS JOSEPH DE CONINCK (1828-1910). This is an almost monochromatic, very understated, subtle painting; perhaps a study for a larger, highly finished work, I believe. The artist's works sell into five figures at Sotheby's and Christie's auctions in Europe. Even though his lifetime would be more likely to be thought of as "nineteenth century", his paintings are often included in "Old Master" sales. See another example by the artist in my shop.
