A beautiful 19th-century oil on canvas depicting an idealised scene in rural Switzerland. The mountains seem to sweep around this picturesque valley as four cows graze by a tranquil lake. In the distance, the highest peak is partially obscured by dense cloud.

The painting is unsigned but it’s clearly by a skilful artist. The trees are rendered particularly well and they guide the eye from the foreground to the background.

Housed in an exquisite gilded swept frame with floral embellishments.
