This oil on board painting depicts a dreamy romantic landscape with trees and 2 sailboats on a river. The style is rather impressionistic, with just enough detail to understand the subject, but not enough detail to make it realism. The piece is done on cardboard and is mounted behind glass. The frame is very pretty with sculpted flowers and a light gold inset. The piece is unsigned. The condition of the painting is good with some very minor paint loss around the edges and the frame also has some minor scuffs and chips to the gesso. I estimate this piece to be from the late 19th century. Measurements are: sight size: 11" by 7", frame is 19 ½" by 15 ½".
