A framed French farmyard scene from the 20th century, by H. Greilschmez. Created in France during the 20th century, this vertical painting features a humble farmyard scene depicting a few houses with slanted roofs standing out beautifully on a blue sky and serving as a background to a grouping of chickens pecking the ground. Upon closer inspection, one will discover a little girl standing discreetly in the shade, in front of what seems to be a barn. She is patiently waiting and has her attention focused on a scene invisible to us. The use of powerful diagonals leads our eye throughout the composition, while the contrast of complimenting colors such as oranges, blues, yellows, red and greens is very pleasing. Signed H. Greilschmez lower right, the painting is set inside a carved giltwood frame. A wonderful addition to any home, perhaps hung above a console table, commode or credenza!
