About

The French call the early 19th Century the "romantic period" in art. Looking looking at this atmospheric, Arcadian landscape with its sublime, exquisitely painted trees, it is easy to see why. There are two lady cowherds chatting, feet in the water, where a little washerwoman is also doing laundry. Into the bargain, you get not only one, but two shepherds with their respective flocks, and cattle grazing peacefully by the river. There is a delightful tranquility, and so much to discover - all figures have a real presence. Pained circa 1810 -some two hundred years ago- the painting is on its original canvas. Size of canvas without frame ca 15 x 18 inches. Presented in its original, Empire- period frame.
