Antique Framed Oil Painting on Canvas by Pol-Francois Mathieu (1895-1979) is a remarkable work by the artist showcasing his landscape skills with a panoramic view of a lush valley with a quaint village as seen from a high vantage point along the quiet river.  Mathieu has created visual interest using color progressions and contrast, with meadows, forest, and hills in the background fading into the haze of distance.  Although the sky as depicted takes up a small portion of the composition, its magnitude is reflected in the perspective of the river feature, creating a splendid effect and peaceful pastoral tone in direct contrast to the human conflict that was taking place during the work's painting.  Survives in its original gold frame.
