Francois van Severdonck, "Landscape with Sheep" 1860

Francois van Severdonck, Belgian, 1809-1889, "Landscape with Sheep". This is a beautiful painting of a ewe and her lambs in a summer meadow, with mallard ducks swimming nearby. It is painted with oils on panel and measures 5 1/2 x 7 5/8 inches, 1860, signed and dated lower right, in a period gilt frame. There is an inscription in French on the back of the board, written in the artist's hand, but we have been unable to decipher it. Van Severdonck was a Belgian artist known for his small scale landscapes and images of farm animals, especially sheep. In this finely detailed image, he uses delicate brushstrokes and rich colors to create an incredibly realistic pastoral scene.
