German School, Impressionist Landscape With Cottages

German School, Impressionist Landscape With Cottages

An easy-going impressionistic landscape painting depicting a rural track with cottages. It’s a piece that conveys the charm and relaxed atmosphere of a warm Summer’s day on the continent.

Imagine the artist exploring this rural idyll, sitting under the shade of a tree, and capturing the view just as they saw it. The brushwork is almost nonchalant with its daubs of impasto.

Signed in the lower left. Probably W Barth.

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.
