'Mountain Pathway' by Unknown Artist (c. 1930s)
'Mountain Pathway' by unknown artist (c. 1930s), oil on board in original, elegant and distinctive vintage frame with new linen slip mount. Painting in very good vintage condition; frame showing signs of cracking and other wear and tear commensurate with its age.
What appears on first glimpse to be a simple work of art becomes, on further assessment, a captivating, splendidly colourful impressionist piece. The turquoise blue sky is the backdrop for a mountainside absorbing the reds and pinks of the setting sun. The chalky pathway leads the viewer up the slope wondering what lies around the bend and whether its view can rival what is in front now. The intense light and visibility may suggest this scene is from Provence. Could it be Mont Ventoux?
