An exquisite early 20th-century interior scene by German artist, Hans Ulmer (b. 1886). It depicts a family working in a barn with the father undertaking some carpentry while his wife prepares a meal. A tiny baby looks up towards its mother from a new wicker crib.
This beautifully rendered piece captures a snapshot into the life of a hard-working family with great attention to detail. Note the armchair on the upper level and the bright light entering through a small window.
Hans Ulmer was a painter of scenes, portraits and landscapes and worked in a traditional style.
The painting is signed/dated in the lower left and housed within a later frame.
