Antique Framed Oil Painting on Canvas by Xavier Wurth (1869-1933) is a splendid landscape with post-impressionist stying, and exquisite use of color and shading to create a misty, early morning effect.  The work achieves an interesting balance between the foreground, water feature and backround tree line, with the early morning grays of the sky providing the perfect backdrop.  Survives in its original frame.
Xavier Wurth was born in 1869 in Liège and died in 1933. He painted primarily landscapes and portraits. From 1889 to 1893, he was student of Adrien de Witte and Evariste Carpentier at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Liège. Later, from 1900 to 1914, he worked his magic in the storied forests of the Ardennes - particularly the valleys of the Ourthe and Amblève. His career peaked when he became a professor of drawing at the Academy of Fine Arts in Liège, but was plagued with illness which began to impact his productivity. Wurth exhibited annually in the circle of fine arts of Liège and distinguished himself as a revered landscape artist, particularly skilled in the rendering of the rivers of the Ardennes, ultimately earning the Prix de Rome.  Many of his works have been exhibited at the Art Museum of Walloon.
His most outstanding pupil was Paul Lepage (Antwerp, 1869-La Hulpe, 1958), another jewel of the Liège School of Landscape, who practiced his art especially in the region of Remouchamps.
