This work, mounted in its original simple but elegant gold frame, is a wonderful example of the merging of the classic pastoral with impressionistic technique. The shepherd and his flock take center stage but are headed away from the viewer to allow a full appreciation of the attention paid to the surroundings and background. Muted, pastel colors make it an excellent choice for most any décor.
Circa early 1900s.
