Gustav Vermehren, Rural Landscape With Man Sawing Wood

Gustav Vermehren, Rural Landscape With Man Sawing Wood

This charming rural scene by Danish artist, Gustav Vermehren (1863-1931), depicts an older gentleman sawing wood by a rustic cottage. Splendid summer light bathes the flora, bringing life and vibrancy. While a gentle breeze rustles atop a wheatfield.

Vermehren’s works often celebrate the less-conspicuous moments of rural life and this is a good example. He favoured reason over experimentation - traditionalism over modernism. With exquisitely controlled brushwork, he elevated the ordinary with his own sense of poetry.

The painting is signed in the lower left and framed.
