Harald Pryn, Danish Village With Thatched Cottage

Harald Pryn, Danish Village With Thatched Cottage

A charming early-20th-century landscape painting depicting a thatched cottage with red windows and door by Danish painter, Harald Julius Niels Pryn (1891-1968). It’s such a beautiful little piece with pops of vibrancy and a skilful array of brush marks.

Pryn tended to work around his home in Bagsvaerd, near Copenhagen, and he’s known primarily for his snow-covered wintery scenes. His Summertime landscapes are quite rare and this a good example.

The painting is signed in the lower right and we can supply its original frame if required.
