Dutch School, Locks In A River Landscape

Dutch School, Locks In A River Landscape

A late 19th-century oil on canvas depicting an old stone lock on a rural waterway in Holland. This beautifully understated painting achieves a modesty through its subtle variations of hue and simple graduated sky.

On the left, several mature trees provide a dense backdrop to the composition, while in the foreground, areas of light gently cascade across the mossy water.

The painting is housed within a solid wooden frame with stepped sides and a border.
