Norbert Grund - Landscape with Shepherds by a Lake Il
The two pendant landscape views with trees distinctly outlined against the cloudy sky exemplify the pastoral genre in Grund´s oeuvre. Even in a small format, the painter was able to convincingly evoke an illusion of deep space, spreading from the ragged shore across the water surface, to the bluish horizon in the distance. Small figures of shepherds and cattle in the foreground enhance the amiable idyllic atmosphere, at the same time representing an enlivening colour accent in the prevailing subdued scale of browns, ochres, and greens.
