In the Valley (Landscape)

Karel Purkyně

Karel Purkyně - In the Valley (Landscape)
Purkyně’s second known landscape from France, traditionally called In the valley, is above all a colour study of mountainous country with staffage. With resolute brush strokes and sharp pastose colours the painter shaped his composed landscape into an exceptionally rich whole, full of colours and striking brushwork.
