Hans Gyde Petersen (1862-1943) - Signed 1914 Oil, The Deer Park near Copenhagen



This remarkably handsome 1914 oil by the well-listed Danish artist Hans Gyde Petersen (1862-1942) is entitled 'The Deer Park near Copenhagen'. A group of trees stand in the parkland, with touches of autumnal colour illuminated by the dappled sunlight.

Gyde Petersen developed a distinct style directly influenced by both the French Impressionists of the late 19th Century and the Skagen painters of Denmark. Here, he has used his approach to light and broad sculptural brushwork to depict a subject altogether more natural and simplistic, away from the social gatherings depicted by both groups, and to great effect.

Well-presented in a dark gilt wooden frame. Signed to the lower right and dated '1914'. Also signed in graphite to the reverse, and inscribed with the title.

Signed and dated and inscribed. On canvas on stretchers.


In very good condition for a picture of this age. Some light surface discolouration, with some very light craquelure to the upper corners. Inspection under UV light reveals no restoration. The frame has some light wear to the edges and corners, with a fine patina of age.


43.7 x 59.2cm (17.2" x 23.3")
Framed Size: 56.5 x 72cm (22.2" x 28.3")
