This atmospheric mid-19th-century nocturne by Danish artist David Monies (1812-1894) depicts two cottages under the gentle glow of a partially covered moon. On the right, a man appears to be tending to his horse by an open barn door. While on the left, another chap casts a long shadow as he walks through the light.

Signed in the lower left and framed.
