Wilhelm Fritzel, Pastoral Landscape With Birch Trees

Wilhelm Fritzel, Pastoral Landscape With Birch Trees

A birch tree contorts through the vertical, stretching into daubs of Autumnal hues. Summer’s passed, there’s a static chill in the air - the shadows are long. On the right, a shepherd guides his flock with one straggler yards behind the rest. Ahead of them, a wide expanse of pasture towards a partially tree-lined horizon.

This absorbing view by German artist, Wilhelm Fritzel (1870-1943), captures a slice of nature’s beauty with an array of impressionistic marks. Brown meets green as the seasons change - a bright blue sky emphasising the dappled silver.

The painting is housed within a period frame and signed.
