19th Century New England Folk Art Landscape Painting
Charming rural scene depicts a fine, large farmhouse peaking through a stand of deciduous trees in autumnal foliage. The white fence and out-buildings reinforce this property as an affluent homestead. An elegant carriage drawn by two white horses pulls up on the drive, with a group of three persons and a dog readying to greet the passengers. A cheerful group of four finely dressed figures and two dogs in the foreground is meticulously rendered.
