Circa 1900, this is a large and spectacular chromolithograph, showing adorable shepherdesses bringing back a flock of geese to a farm.
Done after a painting by "Y. Layte" the piece is naive and incredibly charming, and rendered with the most endearing pastel colors.
The farm is totally idyllic with its lavish cherry blossoms, white roses and wisteria.
The ladies are barefoot and pretty with outfits that seem to come out of a 17th Century painting.
The geese seem to come from far away, and are now crossing a brook.
Everything is dreamlike and not too realistic in the piece, but isn't this exactly why we love these antique chromos so much?
