Figurative oil painting on board in a gold frame by French artist, Henriette Bellair (1904 - 1963). 
Signed in the lower right corner. Unusual impressionist mid-century oil painting of a woman standing on steps leading to park land. She shields herself from the sun with a pink umbrella.  The board is textured to the touch.  A strong composition with good use of light to form shadows adding interest with a myriad of hues of green.


Medium: Oil on board

Overall size: 24ins x 20.5ins or 61cms x 52cms

Date: 1950's

Condition: This painting is in overall good condition, however you should expect imperfections throughout such as small areas of missing paint, particularly on the right edge of the painting. 
The frame is the original and has suffered some damage with missing moulding throughout, with plaster showing through, particularly on the left hand edge.
