A gorgeous little Barbizon School painting of a stormy sky as it blocks the sun from a distant landscape behind the ripples of the ocean. The intricate little brush strokes mix a rich palette of low-saturation colors over the heavy artist paper. It is unsigned on the front and is signed to the reverse illegibly with a black ink stenciled "138" and a neatly written label "No. 138". The work is preserved behind glass in a contemporary frame.

Tear in upper corner (not visible in photos, visible when examined out of the frame). Contemporary frame. Clean and vibrant. Excellent presentation.
