Oil on canvas mounted to board, contemporary frame.
20.5" x 16.5"
Entitled "Farm in Brittany" this 1903 oil on canvas scene mounted to board is by German-born painter, printmaker, and art restorer Carl Barnaš (1879-1953). He studied in Berlin and at Academie Julien-Colarossi in Paris. Barnas moved to Quito, Ecuador in the 1930s and taught at the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes. He opened an art restoration studio, restoring hundreds of 17th and 18th century religious colonial paintings. Barnas painted botanical illustrations and plein air landscapes in Europe and Ecuador’s remote countryside. Initialed and dated lower right. Framed in a contemporary wood frame with a walnut veneer and black sides using beige linen matting.
