The pair are wonderful studies of landscape, time, and place, worked in an almost impressionist manner. The paintings are both signed and dated 1920. They are in excellent untouched condition. The frames are wonderful quality and retain all the original gilding, with one or two old repairs. The pair have a great look and dramatic decorative presence.
