This breathtaking landscape painting by German artist Max Märtens (1887-1970) depicts an extensive mountain view within the Austrian Alps. It’s meticulously rendered and captures the dramatic peaks in all their splendour.
Bathed in brilliant light, this snow-covered vista is a sight to behold. A deep furrow twists its way downhill towards several fir trees - strong verticals that emerge from undulant white scenery. While ahead of them, the rocky precipice of the highest peak towers over the horizon. Majestically climbing with awe-inspiring beauty.
As a keen mountaineer, Märtens often painted the Alps, particularly during the 1920s and 30s.
