Forêt

Original oil landscape painting from France: Oil on hardboard signed Pierre Gustave René (1875-1939) in the lower left corner, and titled "Forêt."
 
The surface is smooth with thick brushstrokes, and the colors are bright and pure. The greens give off a beautiful light and add significant life to the landscape. The double gilding on the frame is the perfect addition to create a romantic finish.
