RESERVED - French Village in the Valley Painting

Sorry, this item has sold.

RESERVED FOR ESME - This scene of a quiet little village nestled among rolling fields with trees dotting the landscape is a timeless image of the French countryside, just as true today as it was a hundred or two hundred years ago. The simple, lovely palette of soft greens, blues, and ochres gives the impression of a bright summer day starting over the little village and its church steeple. Unsigned but acquired as part of a collection with two other landscapes signed E. Béchard in 1914.


Dimensions: approx. 33 cm x 35 cm / 13 in x 13.75 in


These pieces wear their history like all vintage pieces which only adds to their story. This painting is in very good condition with no tears, chips, or staining on the front of the painting. The canvas is not stretched very tightly or has loosened with time making the edges loose (see 5th photo). The canvas is ripped on one side of the stretchers (see 4th photo).
