Dark and moody antique French landscape/riverscape early to mid 1800's in its original frame, French school.  This delightfully unusual oil painting on stretched canvas has wonderful depth and sits  in what is likely to be its original frame.  A woman lies on a river bank close to a grazing sheep.  Shaded by large leafy trees, she turns away from the three barely visible dancing water nymphs who gain seclusion from the darkness of the grey rocks.  It's a romantic and symbolic painting where your eye is first caught by the leafy fullness of the trees and the amazing depth of this painting in darkened hues and later when you have discovered the nymphs on the darkness, you gaze towards the light and the fortress wall on the left.
