Location: Baton Rouge


Antique Framed Oil Painting on Canvas is a splendid work of rustic charm, presented in a less traditional color palette that creates a cooling effect.  The quaint thatch roofed cottages in the scene include the one in the immediate foreground at right, with intriguing domed roof effect over the doorway to present a taller opening to the dwelling, yet retain the easy access to the roof for thatch patching.  The sky has been rendered with bold strokes and spatulas contrasting with the still, reflective water feature in the lower left of the work.  Survives in its original frame & matt.
Circa mid-1900s
