Near the Cottage

Josef Mánes

Josef Mánes - Near the Cottage
This picture, somewhere between genre and landscape, was painted in the mid-fifties after a sketch of an actual cottage at Nižbor near Beroun. Because of the handling of the intimate motif in Rococo colours, the painting became very popular and was many times reproduced. Mánes's sister Amálie painted a water-colour and an oil painting after this picture.
