This painting depicts a landscape scene of two boys fishing in a river just past a small waterfall. In the background just beyond the tree line are the rooftops of a small town with rolling hills behind the town. The painting is housed in a gold painted, large wooden frame carved with a floral motif. It is signed in the bottom left "GEO. PETER", the signature of landscape artist George Peter. On the back is the tag, "The Milwaukee Journal's Gallery of Wisconsin Art, George Peter, 804 Chestnut St. Title Landsscape in Milwaukee Wis." The painting and frame measure 24 1/2 inches by 35 inches. A very nice original oil painting by a known Wisconsin artist.
Very fine overall with limited handling marks on the frame.
