French Oil on Panel Painting Depicting a Seashore Bathed in Subtle Golden Light

A French oil on panel seascape painting from the 20th century. Charming us with its humble subject and grand simplicity, this French oil on panel painting depicts a quiet seashore bathed in a subtle golden light. The left side of the composition, occupied with houses and small boats, is perfectly contrasted to the sea and sky placed to the right. It is low tide, the small boat in the front is leaning on the ground, its mast's slight diagonal creating a sense of depth. The setting sun, absent in the scene but reflected in the water, creates another focal point and leads our eye to the horizon. Unframed, this French oil on panel painting, signed Astier lower right, will bring a peaceful touch to any home decor.
