Axel Schovelin, Summer’s Day In Zealand

Axel Schovelin, Summer’s Day In Zealand

This joyous landscape painting by Danish artist Axel Schovelin (1827-1893) depicts a beautiful view in Zealand with undulant scenery and picturesque woodland. On our right, a mother and her two sons are resting by an old track where several sheep graze.

Beyond them, a glimpse of distant hills, which are gently painted in lighter values. While in the foreground, a stream runs horizontally by our feet - the abundant foliage rendered with precision. 

Schovelin was a master of light and enjoyed the spacious views in this part of Denmark.

Signed/dated in the lower right and housed within a handsome gilt frame with foliate decoration.

Please note that this painting will need to be crated if shipped overseas. A cost for the crate will be added on during checkout.
