Vintage French post-impressionist haystack landscape by Albert Malet (1905-1986), signed in the lower left corner.  A traditional haystack composition, oil on board in an old frame.  This painting, helped by the frame has a golden glow.  Three traditional haystacks are the focus they sit in a yellow hay field against a slightly stormy sky or perhaps it is early evening when the artist comes across them.  Animated brush strokes, with a limited color palette of blues, greys and yellows, mixed on the board to give texture to the touch and animation to the eye.
