A charming, whimsical, beautifully painted oil on canvas painting of a brown-robed man of the church in a spring forest setting minding a pig, while a vision of loveliness, a nude young female, appears at right. The work is unsigned but most certainly would have been painted by a listed artist. The piece is unframed and measures 21 1/2" by 18". The condition is generally good though a cleaning and varnish would be greatly enhancing, the surface now being dry; and there are some old small abraded areas at extreme lower right that could be inpainted. The light greens of spring and the white blossoms of the tree are beautifully handled by this talented artist.
