Antique French riverscape/landscape in a beautiful ornate frame by French artist, Pierre Louis Cazaubon, signed in the lower right corner.  This attractive post-impressionist oil on thick card  of a boat making its way down the Dordogne river at the Bords de L'Isle, Neuvic.  The Perigord is a wonderful area in south West France and the artisst has expertly captured the moment. A lone figure makes their way down the peaceful and unspoilt river.  Passing reflections of the overgrown trees lining the bank, only interrupted by a quaint clay roofed boathouse to the left of the painting.  The artist has managed to animate the painting by the use of impasto enforced knife and brushstrokes and giving the most appealing depth to the water and the quiet countryside beyond.
