La Butte aux Chênes
Antique oil painting from France: French watercolor under glass titled "La Butte aux Chênes", signed Ch. A. Gautier and dated 1907. A delicate work made of light, subtle lines. We can see an adult and a child in this animated rural scene. The mint and ivory pastel palette adds a touch of poetry to this piece, which's mounted on a robust wooden and stucco frame with discreet gilding.
