Landscape with a Church - Swiss School

Bucolic rural scene representing a church and village homes next to a body of water, set in a hilly landscape with dispersed villages and a mountain range visible in the distance. Parishioners are gathered at the church’s main entrance. This charming oil on canvas painting will require a surface cleaning and mild restoration to bring it back to its original beauty; an ideal project for a novice conservator. An illegible signature appears in the lower left corner, as well as a label with the date and text in French on the back.
