For Sale A watercolour by Herman Bogman (jr.)
A Farmer returning Home
This beautiful 20th-century watercolour by the Dutch artist Herman Bogman Jr. depicts a picturesque view of a small rural town with a farmer returning home. Its beauty arises from its immediacy, and it was probably painted straight from nature. A moment of peace at the end of a long day.
