Antique Oil Painting on Board by H. G. Ontrop (1880-1955) is a splendid example of the artist's work blending a panoramic landscape combining sky, earth and water features with the humanistic element of a group in the foreground washing clothes in the river.  Ontrop creates balance with his use of trees and foliate cradling the people in the foreground as well as the small group of dwellings at the center of the work.  The dynamics of the abrupt cliff jutting up into the cloudy sky is a splendid dramatic effect.
Circa mid-1900s
