This late 19th-century oil painting by Belgian artist Isidore Verheyden (1846-1905) depicts a small farmyard.

Snuffling and grunting amid the grubby hay, a chubby pig with a muddy nose. The king of its pen, surrounded by poultry, rummaging for scraps. Beyond, across a tired wall, a woman walks past a stone farmhouse. She’s carrying something, perhaps it's feed time.

Verheyden was a master, one of the more influential artists of his generation. He studied under the great Jean-François Portaels and trained numerous others. His rapid plein air daubs provide an exciting glimpse into his thought processes. Note the confident application of light in short bold marks and the accomplished rendering of the clouds in swift pinkish swirls. Perhaps he stayed here awhile on a rural excursion.

Stamped in the lower right ‘Atelier Verheyden’ and held within a gilt frame.
