Large Italian landscape, oil on canvas, 19th century.

Large Italian landscape, oil on canvas, 19th century. A misty dawn scene shows cattle crossing the watering spot with flowers and trees alongside the bank. And old Roman signal tower is above with yet another tower in the distance and classical temples at the most distant view. Figures are seen at the shore, as well as fishermen in a boat. The bluish tones of the distant mountains accentuate the blue sky with scattered light clouds and a flock of birds. An outstanding heavily carved wooden frame with scrolls and leafage surrounds a molded rim. Gilded.
