Oil on canvas - Hand signed - 1860

Very nice and large museum piece. See the photos for the description.
Possibly B.G. Ten Berge. Signed on the lower left on the fence.
A beautiful depiction with nice red setting sun.
Origin renowned auction house. They consider the chance of it being an authentic work of B.G. Ten Berge quite large. The style and subject suits his way of painting.

Please note: this work has a bit of craquelure and needs a cleaning. There is also a tiny tear in the canvas in one of the sheep. This is barely visible but should be mentioned nonetheless. It can be quiet simply fixed.

B.G. ten Berge was a painter of mostly landscapes (with or without cattle), stable interiors and animal pieces. There are also cityscapes, portraits and a genre piece here and there known to have been done by him. Most of his life, he lived and worked in his hometown of Alkmaar, where he also received his education. Pieter Plas, fellow townsman, brother-in-law and director of the local art company 'Kunst Zij Ons Doel', was his teacher. From 1850 to 1872, he regularly exhibited his work at the annual exhibition of ‘Levende Meesters’. The national print cabinet in Amsterdam and the national museum Kröller-Müller owns work (drawings) by Ten Berge.
