A Well Travelled Old Woodland Oil Painting - The Heart of the Woodland
This very old oil painting could tell a story or twenty. Painted onto a wooden board and it has holes to the top edge and one to the bottom left where it was attached to its original frame, the edges are worn and corners rounded. It would look wonderful positioned in a calm corner of your home either on its own or as part of a still life. It is a beautiful piece.
The painting is quite dark, expected for its style and has darkened from its journey. I have tried to show how the painting appears set away from a window in a darker part of your home or (as the photograph with the textured linen ground show) by a window bathed in daylight.
The oil measures approx 22.5cm x 30cm
Age approx 170 years old.
