Antique French landscape oil painting of the setting sun by French artist, Ernest Gaston Amas (1869-1959) see photo.  A palette of the most wonderful hues has been laid on this canvas by an expert artist.  It is exceptional in its mastery.  A slightly textured canvas brings to life the setting of the sun.  The eye is drawn to the centre of the canvas where a textured sun falls into the horizon.  The atmospheric sky above is full of orange and pink tones. Darkened lilac shadows of houses add interest to the landscape, while in the fore the textured brushstrokes of the artist bring to life the surrounding countryside in the most amazing, but authentic colours. 


Medium: Oil on canvas

Overall size: 19.5ins x 22.5ins or 50cms x 57cms

Date: 1880's

Condition: The painting, although not perfect, is in very good antique condition, some losses of paint throughout .  The frame is quite likely the original, it is in good condition for the age but you should expect imperfections throughout such as losses of colour and moulding, as well as renovations.
