Dark Danish School Mountainous Landscape With Lake

Dark Danish School Mountainous Landscape With Lake

An atmospheric Danish landscape painting depicting a young lady stood before an extensive mountainous landscape and lake.

It reminds us of Caspar David Friedrich’s ‘Wanderer Above The Sea Of Fog’, in which a solitary figure looks out across a vast series of peaks. Paintings of this kind often refer to the power of nature and contemplate man’s role within it.

It’s housed within a birds-eye maple frame and the canvas has darkened over time.
