Jakob Hansen, Rural View With Cottage & Pond

Jakob Hansen, Rural View With Cottage & Pond

The striking form of a four-pronged tree casts a broad reflection in a tranquil pond. While a quiet cottage, partially shaded, cuts a distinctive shape through a woodland thicket.

This fine rural view by Danish artist, Jakob Hansen, celebrates the curious beauty often found within nature. The combination of pond and tree is not man-made yet they complement each other as if planned for eternity. Also note the second tree, which creates a diagonal line and draws the eye towards the yonder - a dense horizon with distant hills.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
