Félix Planquette - Horses by the Pond

Lovely rural landscape scene painting circa 1900 representing an old farmhouse surrounded by mature trees next to a pond bathed in late afternoon sunlight. A white mare and her foal frolic merrily in the meadow next to the pond. Oil painting set in a magnificent Art Nouveau carved wood frame from the early 1900s, decorated with leaves, fruits and flowers, with an antique gold patina.
