Framed art, not an oil, Approximately 17"W X 25"H of a tree with forest in background
Done in 1909, acquired by my grandfather in 1938, has been passed down the family ever since. My father brought it to America around 1986. My parents and myself are Dutch immigrants.
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
