A fine late 19th-century oil on canvas depicting an older gentleman walking along a track through a heath landscape. The artist, Edvard Lehmann (1815-1892), has captured his posture nicely and used an array of skilfully considered marks to create the piece.
Lehmann studied at the Royal Danish Academy in his hometown of Copenhagen. He’s known predominantly for his interior scenes and he also worked at the Royal Danish Theatre as a costume draughtsman.
The painting is monogrammed in the lower left and housed within a gilded frame with a name plaque.
