Dutch School Landscape With Farmhouse

Dutch School Landscape With Farmhouse

A light-filled summertime landscape depicting a woman feeding chickens outside a small farmhouse. The paint is applied with daubs from a broad brush and perhaps the artist worked ‘en plein air’.

We particularly love the opening on the right-hand side, which provides a view across to a distant woodland.

The painting is signed GJ Delfgaauw in the lower right, so its probably by a follower of Gerardus Johannes Delfgaauw (1882-1947).

Overall size: 20” x 16” / 51cm x 40cm
Year of creation: c. 1940
Provenance: Germany

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
