Attrib. Johann Joseph Hartmann (1753-1830) - 1820 Oil, Dutch Winter Landscape
A very fine early 19th century oil depicting a Dutch winter landscape with a frozen lake and snow covered path. Figures gather around a horse and sled, balancing on the ice, while a small village can be picked out in the distance.
Known for their love for landscape painting, and claim on its origin, the Dutch/Germanic art of the early 19th century combined nature and landscape painting, drawing inspiration from the very essence of Dutch art. There were painters, Hartmann included, at the beginning of the nineteenth century who had succeeded in keeping their art untouched by foreign fashions and continuously refused to abandon the traditions of the 'Golden Age' Dutch masters.
This beautifully detailed composition, with wonderful light throughout, is a very fine example of classical early work. We have attributed the painting to Johann Joseph Hartmann (1753-1830) due to the similarities in the handling of the paint and the inscription on the reverse.Signed. On panel.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration with very minor surface marks to the left edge. A very minor loss to the lower right edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
