A French Impressionist style framed oil on canvas painting from the mid 20th century, depicting a church in a village. Created in France during the midcentury period, this horizontal painting depicts a Sunday morning in a small village. Our eye is immediately drawn to the geometric lines of a humble church towards which the villagers are converging. The foreground, accented with darker trees offering the perfect frame to the church, are sheltering sheep, lamb and children, while a farmer is pushing a small wheelbarrow on the left side. Set inside a gilded frame and signed lower left, this Impressionist style French oil on canvas painting circa 1950 will bring a touch of simple elegance to any wall, perhaps hung above commode, console table or credenza.
