Sheep and Goats in a Bucolic Landscape (1859)

Oil on panel | Signed lower left "Eugene Verboeckhoven 1859", red wax seal remnants verso

Item # 103WTA23Q 

A finely detailed bucolic landscape capturing two sheep in the foreground and a pair of goats just behind them on a pasture of green grasses with golden billows of wheat in the background. In the distance we see hints of a windmill at the unusually low horizon beneath brilliant bright skies. The work is signed in his typical manner lower left.

Measurements: 10" H x 12 3/4" W [panel]; 16 3/4" H x 19 1/2" W x 1 3/4" D [frame]

Condition Report:
Contemporary frame with minor wear/discoloration; formerly cradled panel, battens since removed; two horizontal restored cracks with associated inpainting along the face of the painting - the cracks appear to be closed with hide glue and it will be important to keep the painting humidity controlled (less than 50% RH) throughout the year; a few scattered surface touchups; cleaned and sealed by our conservator with traditional Damar varnish. A fine presentation.
