Oil paint on canvas laid on artist panel, signed lower right NKB '81
Item # 709VFF15L

With vigorous and high energy brush strokes, the artist of this fine work brings to life a dreamy country landscape with a range of color and complexity of swirling pigment that is most moving.  The dark figure blurs into the foliage of the background, behind which a grove of trees line the horizon.  In the lower right corner the initials of the artist are crisply incised: NKB, dated ’81.  It is a finely preserved piece in presentation-ready condition.

Measurements:  16 3/4” W x 2 1/2” D x 19 1/2” H [frame]; 10 3/8” W x 13 1/8” H [panel]
