20th-century French School oil on wood panel signed Mary Coulon-Serra (1888-1975). A certificate of authenticity and a short biography of the artist appear on the back. The work is smooth to the touch.
An Impressionist landscape with a juxtaposition of very fine brushstrokes in technique and rendering. The light is brought in sparingly and matches brilliantly with the nuanced palette. The brighter colors stand out and come to create movement in the immobile.
