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.

Painting

Harbor Nocturne
Harbor Nocturne

This is an atmospheric moonlit scene of a ship coming in to harbor, painted in oil on Academy Board and measuring 15 1/8 x 11 inches. It is obscurely signed "H. G. Lask..?" in the lower right corner; although we have not been able to determine the identity of the artist, this painting is certainly done by a skilled hand, very much in the style of James Gale Tyler. A very fine 19th century painting in an ornate period gilt frame.
