A French oil on canvas landscape painting from the 20th century, depicting the Petit Port de Dinan and set in wooden frame. Created in France during the 20th century, this landscape painting depicts the fortified town of Dinan, located in Brittany, Western France. Showcasing a frame within the frame, the painting is carefully composed with diagonals. The viewer is standing under an arched porch and is looking at a humble man carrying two buckets of water. He is walking in the middle of a narrow street flanked with houses presenting slanted roofs typical of Brittany. The contrast between the darker foreground leading our eye to discover the brightness of the blue sky in the background, creates an appealing scene. Signed lower left, this vertical French 20th century painting will enliven any wall beautifully, perhaps hung above a side table or chest-of-drawers.
