Harald Pryn, Winter Landscape With Track & Buildings

Harald Pryn, Winter Landscape With Track & Buildings

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

Towards the centre of the composition, a snow-covered track winds its way towards two farm buildings past trees and a dry stone wall. The snow is several feet deep in areas and the buildings would be a warm and welcome retreat.

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 in a gilded foliate frame that’s probably its original.
