Antique Landscape Oil Painting from France: Barbizon School end of the 19th-century oil on canvas signed V. Berbinau.
This smooth work on canvas has subtle thickness of paint and texture on the foliage. True to the style of the Barbizon School, there is a deep attention to contrast and using darkness to draw the eye. The wide bright sky contrasts sharply with this dark moss green vegetation. Berbinau used a bucolic palette to create a landscape charged with familiarity and mystery at the same time.
