Antique Framed Oil Painting on Canvas ~ 'Bord de Riviere' by E. Fayt is a superb landscape that blends a host of elements to an exceptional degree of artistry.  The trees just beginning to show new Spring growth dominate the visual center of the composition, acting as an anchor between the sky and the water below, with subtle reflections expertly rendered.  The land in this work takes a minor role, supporting a distant hazy forest in the background, and the hint of a cottage behind the underbrush to the right.  A lone fisherman adds a human element, with blooming water lilies in the foreground as a nice touch.  Survives in its original detailed giltwood frame.
Circa early 1900s
