Peder Mork Monsted: Winter (1914)

Very lovely, deep and crisp and even….in most places.

At Sunnyside - Where Truth and Beauty Meet

Peder Mork Monsted (Danish 1859 – 1941), Winter , signed and dated P. Monsted. 1914.(lower right), oil on canvas, canvas: 32 by 47¾ in.; 83.5 by 122 cm, Image Source: Sotheby’s

“This snowy scene epitomizes Mønsted’s photographically crisp winter landscapes. True to his paintings of verdant forests with streams running through them, here too his masterful observation of water and surrounding snowis central to the composition….While visiting Paris in 1883, he worked in the studio ofWilliam Bouguereau, under whose tutelage he further honed his rigorous academic style which he applied to landscape.”
