Constant Artz Ducks Painting
A beautiful antique oil painting on canvas signed by the artist Constant Artz (1870 - 1951). It features a family of ducks by the water and cows on the background. The work of art has been signed on the left bottom corner. The painting is finely framed with a vintage frame.
Constant Artz (1870-1951) is a son of painter David Adolph Constant Artz (1837-1890). "Just like his father, Constant was fascinated by nature. He painted many landscapes with windmills and navies. In addition to these genre performances, he also painted cityscapes and still lifes. Presumably under the influence of Willem Maris he began to focus on Dutch landscapes with ducks by the water. For these scenes, there was a great interest among the public in the 19th century. With a smooth, impressionistic touch he painted ducks with their chicks in all their actions. Constant was a master in the processing of sun and light effects in his work and had a great sense of color."
Condition: overall good antique condition with some normal signs of ages. The frame has some painting lacks. Please take a close look at the photos, they are an integral part of the description.
