 Naive Painting Of A Man Sitting On Bench, Looking At A Pond


PhilShadfly Folk Art Gallery and Antiques is located in Port Dover, Ontario

This unsigned oil on board, found in Norfolk County, depicts a tranquil scene of a man contemplating a pond somewhere in Europe. In Norfolk there are many German, Dutch, and Belgian immigrants because of the tobacco industry here, and it is not hard to imagine that this was rendered by someone missing, or at least remembering home. I like the way he/she painted the trees and reflection in the water. Very peaceful. Mid 20th century. Framed by the artist. Framed it measures 22" x 19". The frame is 2" wide. Good original condition.
