Le Moulin des Jesuites Oil on Board. This is a lovely painting of a turn of the century winter scene in front of an historic mill in Quebec. The colours are vibrant and the figures have a naif folk art charm. The painting is signed and framed with a small plaque on the front which reads: "Le Moulin des Jesuites, between La Prairie and Chaughnawaga, Quebec". Not dated. Unknown artist. Both the painting and frame are in very good condition.
