Weißes Pferd [Ludwig Wilhelm Plock]

DESCRIPTION

Ludwig Wilhelm Plock (1878-1940) was a German impressionist painter that studied at the Karlsruhe Academy and then later at Trübner. Many of his works feature wildlife and he clearly had a fondness for nature in general. This is the only depiction of a white horse that we can find and it’s beauty is in its simplicity.

The horse fills the canvas and stands with its head slightly facing away from us. Broad, confident, brushwork creates light and shade on the torso, while finer work illustrates the details on the saddle. From the mud underneath, you can tell that it’s recently returned from a hack.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price. For those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish. We always try to source frames that are appropriate for the age of the painting but can also provide contemporary alternatives if you prefer. You only pay for the cost of the actual frame (usually £30 - £50) as we include the labour for free.
