Charles Diligeon

Village by the Sea, 1887
15 x 22 in
A bright, sharp, happy landscape by 19th-c. French artist Charles Alfred Diligeon (1825 - 1897), signed and dated 1887 on the lower right. Past a cluster of rustic structures you can see sailboats sailing on the open sea. Fine sense of color and composition, a delightful picture. Some stretcher impressions to canvas as is common with pictures of this age. 15" x 22" with frame, 12.5" x 20" without.
