Antique Framed Oil Painting on Canvas of the City of Ghent is a magnificent work, set in an equally magnificent frame!  Although the artist was anonymous, it is plainly evident that a master was at work, blending both perspective, color and composition to the highest degree.  The ancient city is beautiful, and its history dates back to the first millennium, and today as the capital and largest city of the East Flanders province, and the third largest in the country, exceeded in size only by Brussels and Antwerp.  The quaint streets are intertwined with the old canals, used since antiquity to move goods and people among the city's sections, as well as trade with adjoining municipalities.  Survives in its elaborately detailed giltwood frame with two distinct tiers of lavishness!
