A Day in the Park, Vintage French Painting

 I found this painting at a brocante in the south of France. It looks like it was part of a larger work which was cut into pieces (you can see a pencil line down the right side) A sad thought, but a wonderful painting none the less and still very frame worthy. It measures 13 1/2" by 10 3/4"
The painter obviously had talent if not training, the mom and her children are lovingly rendered and the garden statues and fencing are done in amazing detail.
 The last picture is of the back, it is oil on board, you can see the fresh marks where the painting was broken into (at least) 3 parts. I fell in love with it at the brocante, and across the pond it came. It is now in my etsy shop (www.etsy.com/listing/102430880/oil-painting-on-board-vintage-or-antique) and will be in my booth at Brimfield in July.
