Lot 568: Ertz (Edward Frederick, 1862-1954). Winter Landscape with woman feeding geese, Rambouillet, Poigny, oil on canvas (stamped Paul Foinet to reverse), signed lower right, 37 x 46cm (14.5 x 18ins), period moulded gilt frame, with handwritten note in ink by the artist describing the picture attached to the reverse of the canvas, and label for the 48th Exposition Versaillaise, 1901 to stretcher, with artist's name and an address in Paris. The artist's manuscript note attached to this painting, provides information on the work, most likely to an early owner: 'The little snow picture you have was painted at Poigny in the forest of Rambouillet. I painted several large ones there, which were exhibited at the Salon - R.A. and R.B.A. and sold. One was awarded a medal in France. All three were exhibited at my exhibition in Paris. I used to have a studio and cottage in the forest of Rambouillet: which is about an hour from Versailles'. (1)
