Harald Pryn, Winter Landscape With Cottage

Harald Pryn, Winter Landscape With Cottage

An atmospheric early 20th-century oil on canvas by Danish artist, Harald Julius Niels Pryn (1891-1968).

Towards the centre of the composition, a muddy track twists its way towards a village past trees that are battered by the wind. A thatched cottage is sheltered behind them and could be a welcome retreat on this blustery day.

Harald Pryn was a master at chilly rural views with winding countryside tracks. He worked primarily around his home in Bagsvaerd, near Copenhagen, and he’s well known for his snow-covered wintery scenes.

The painting is signed in the lower left and housed within a gilded foliate frame that’s probably its original.
