A fine 19th-century oil on canvas depicting a tree-lined pond with ducks and flora. It’s a painting of two halves with our view split between the dense woodland on the right and the light blue sky on the left.
The artist has a skilful impressionistic touch and the brushmarks are applied confidently with thick oil paint in areas. We love the way they’ve captured the effects of light as it reflects off the water in the foreground.
The painting is signed in the lower right and housed within a decorative coved frame with a foliate border.

Very presentable with two tidy repairs to the canvas. Craquelure in areas but the paint layer is stable. Frame with age-related wear.
