Folk Art Lady With Horse Oil on Canvas Board Signed
I just love this scene of interaction between human and equine! Charming naive painting of a young woman with horse or pony by a fence with impressionistic landscape background. Not sure if this is a horse or pony, but the young lady obviously loves it! She's sitting on the fence, holding his head in her hands, about to nuzzle his muzzle! Beautiful expressions on both faces. She has long hair and is wearing cuffed blue jeans, a white sleeveless shirt and boots. Horse is dark bay with soft brown eyes and is wearing a halter. Signed and dated in lower left corner C. Montgomery `61. I'm an artist myself and taught for over 25 years. This piece has a wonderful feeling and nice brush work! Oil on canvas board framed in brown wood, hanging wire and hardware on back. measures 15" x 15" framed. A sweet painting for your collection of equine art.
