1949 Village in The Valley Folk Art Landscape Painting by M. Thompson



Absolutely charming 1949 painting of a village nestled in a mountain valley. The artist has beautifully captured a very plain moment in time. At first glance, it seems the buildings are the subject of the painting. Each building is beautifully rendered with earthy tones of ochre, brown, beige, and terra cotta. The precise perspective of the buildings lead the eye through the valley, out to the mountains, and up to the sky. The real magic is revealed once you take a deeper look. A man with a kite enjoys the foreground pasture. At bottom right, a woman can be seen strolling along a road. There are at least two more figures seen making their way through town. There is nothing remarkable happening here. The painting serves as a snap shot of a simple moment in the day of every-day people. This image is a visual representation of “stop and smell the roses.” The little things that make life so grand. Painted on canvas board, signed “M. Thompson” and housed in a gold frame with lovely dentil and etched details.
