French School, 19th Century

Barbizon Landscape (oil on board, 10" x 16")

Although unsigned, this painting is clearly the work of a talented late 19th century artist working in the Barbizon style of Rousseau or Daubigny. In the center of a lush, wet landscape, are grazing cattle with a lake in the background and above it all a wonderful sky full of towering clouds.
