Emil Wennerwald, Autumn Landscape, Borresø Lake Near Silkeborg, Denmark

This beautiful early-20th-century oil painting by Danish artist Emil Wennerwald (1859-1934) depicts a view across Borresø Lake near Silkeborg, Denmark. It’s a tranquil vista in rich Autumnal tones.

The triangular form of the bank in the foreground splits the composition diagonally and creates interest against the shimmering waters. While a single spindly tree juts across the horizon and draws our eye towards distant hills.

Wennerwald’s clever composition is enhanced by a sumptuous palette - a radiant celebration of Autumn.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
