Antique French Painting Landscape 18th Century Abbey On The Lake:
Abbey on the Lake - Late 18th Century.
Romantic scene of an ancient abbey on the decline, situated on the edge of a lake in a mountainous setting. We notice two peasants on the far shore. The location could not be identified, but it could be an artistic rearrangement of the abbey of Hautecombe.
A recent restoration comprising the removal of oxidized varnish and many repaints has led to the discovery of a white heron (Ardea alba) on the near shoreline.
