The Dore Valley
Landscape painting from France: French School of the 20th-century oil on wood attributed to Frank Bal (1876-1960) and dated on the back 1936. The landscape represents the Dore Valley in the south of France (Puy-de-Dôme). The panel is textured in the foreground and the surface is smoother in the background.
An Impressionist work with a beautiful depth and a lively palette carried by a beautiful natural light. The golden frame and its foliage perfectly match the bright colors of the landscape.
