I found this painting during our most recent trip to the Netherlands and was happy it made it home safely!
The painting is done on wood and depicts a typical Dutch farmhouse set along a river or canal with two windmills standing guard in the distance. The farmer is about to cross the bridge, my favorite detail!
The lovely ornate plaster-over-wood frame has a few pieces that have broken off but the ornate details are still lovely. You could fill in the missing pieces with gold paint if they really bother you but I prefer to leave treasures in as-found condition – I think of the missing bits as scars of time.
There is a bit of a pinkish hue to the sky and there are a couple of areas that look like they might be stains rather than paint. I have not tried to clean this in any way so they might wash right off.
The painterly, loose style of the landscape is just wonderful and would look lovely in so many different types of rooms or vignettes.
