A picturesque rural view depicting an older gentleman walking along a worn country track as the sun sets over a tree-lined horizon.

On the right of the image, a traditional Dutch cottage with an illuminated window is partially obscured. Perhaps this is where the gentleman is returning to? While on the left, a sturdy old stone barn sits nestled among a copse.

The artist, Hendrik Jan Verhaaf (1890-1970) specialised in capturing the beauty of the Dutch rural idyll and this is a good example of his work. The sunlit muddy puddles in the foreground are particularly well rendered.

The painting is signed in the lower left and housed within an appropriate gilt-effect contemporary frame.

Very good overall. There looks to be a repair on the reverse but nothing visible on the front.
