Marcelle Delorme, Beauvais

DESCRIPTION

A beautiful turn of the century impressionistic pastoral scene featuring a flock of sheep, two goats, and a single seated figure.

The artist, Mademoiselle Marcelle Delorme, has used a delicate blend of muted browns and greens to capture this Autumnal view in Beauvais, Northern France. Her style is a little reminiscent of the great French impressionist painter, Berthe Morisot, who was probably a contemporary.

The clever composition draws your eye from the trees on the left outwards across the expanse of land and ultimately towards the horizon. The animals are skilfully rendered and the seated figure is little more than a few intelligent brushmarks.

Signed in the bottom left.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price. For those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish. We always try to source frames that are appropriate for the age of the painting but can also provide contemporary alternatives if you prefer. You only pay for the cost of the actual frame (usually £30 - £50) as we include the labour for free.
