Léon Marie Benoît, Autumnal Landscape With Distant Hills

Léon Marie Benoît, Autumnal Landscape With Distant Hills

A calming autumnal landscape painting by French artist, Léon Marie Benoît. The subdued palette of subtle browns and cool blues give the piece a chilly atmosphere. It evokes the feeling of a brisk walk on a cold day in November.

In 1907, Benoît was awarded a medal at a Salon in Lyon where he exhibited multiple times. The painting is signed in the lower right and housed within a decorative foliate frame.
