BARBIZON SCHOOL LANDSCAPE OF FARM OVERLOOKING A MARSH Circa late 19th century, oil on canvas relined on panel; signed JAN'82 lower right Item # 709EDZ27P. A vivid little work that exudes a certain moodiness and pensive character in its depiction of a stormy sky rolling away, there is an optimism in the scene as the blue peeks through the thick cloud cover. The landscape shows the waters of a marsh with extensive foliage growth and long grasses before a large farm house over which a flock of birds move across the sky.
A gentle and symmetrical brush stroke leaves the lower half of the painting dreamy and orderly while the artist brings a certain fervor and chaos to the brush strokes throughout the stormy sky; this adds a touch of drama to the rolling and furling cloud cover. In the lower right corner the painting is signed JAN / 82 in the same red pigment that outlines the roofline of the distant house. 19 1/4" W x 11 1/2" H [frame]; 15 1/2" W x 8" H [panel]. Condition Report: Frame is quite early and possibly original with gesso losses in three corners, some gesso patching and inpainting.
