This impressionist oil on canvas by Henry Lerolle (1848-1929), entitled “The Resting Place” could give your rooms a year around feeling of summer. Professionally cleaned and revarnished, this French landscape is in excellent condition. The wonderful gilt frame is a wide elaborate plaster relief period piece. Significantly, provenance includes ownership by the Walkers of Walker Art Museum fame with written documentation.

In this scene, two women rest at a rustic bench amongst white flowers of the summer with the sunlit French countryside offering views of a nearby house and distant hills. This appealing subject matter is warmed by soft colors of foliage in its summer hues. View size is 23 1/2″ X 28 3/4″. Relined. Signed lower left.

May I answer further questions or provide more detailed images? We look forward to your visit.

Thanks and regards
