Marcel Paul Meys (Active 1880-1901): Pastoral Scene - Study - Oils on Board - In Arcadia

A seller on eBay France has recently listed this nice idyllic, pastoral study titled "In Arcadia" by the seller. It is by Marcel Paul Meys, who was active from 1880 to 1901. He specialized in landscapes, Orientalist works, and female nude figurative studies. He studied under Puvis de Chauvannes and Jules Elie Delaunay. Although a simple oils on artist board study, it still shows an accomplished, classically trained hand and a fine sense of color and paint application.

                         Here are a few examples of his works:
