1930s Walter Farrington Moses Oil Painting

Circa 1930s oil on canvas by California Plein Air Painter Walter Farrington Moses. Painting is in a period hand carved frame & signed lower left "WALTON". This painting is part of a collection of Walter Farrington Moses works that I purchased several years ago directly from the Walter Farrington Moses family. It is a rare example of his work in that it features figures and is not a straight landscape. The painting measures 16" x 20" (21" x 24" overall) and is in excellent condition, frame has original finish/patina and is also in good condition.
