Grand 19th Century Framed Landscape Oil Painting on Canvas is a magnificent work, ready to create a mural effect in your home or office!  Soaring over eight feet tall, and over six and a half feet wide, it represents a blend of the panoramic pastoral setting with vertical scale that is very unusual for the genre.  The artist has paid meticulous attention to the cloudy sky, while allowing enough light to permeate the work to create contrast, visual interest and subtle shadows in the lower half of the canvas.  The scene shows a water side, hilly terrain, combining charming cottages on the grassy slopes, and a gaff-rigged fishing scow in the distance along with the ever-present windmills that dot the entire northwestern coast of Europe.  The lush tree canopy and grasses indicate a summer setting, and human interest is achieved with folks enjoying the day on the hill above a woman feeding her chickens, while sheep graze nearby.
