19th-century French school oil on wood panel signed by Paul Bofils (1868-1943), featuring a textured post-impressionist landscape. The artwork is characterized by comma brushstrokes rich in volume and dynamic textures, particularly in the sky. The vibrant palette showcases variations of green on the ground and massive clouds in a brilliant blue sky. Skillful use of light and textural reliefs adds soothing movement and depth to the scene.
