19th Century, German
Evening in the Forest
This is a luminous 19th century landscape by German artist George Haller. It is painted with oils on canvas and measures 12 3/4 x 20 1/2 inches. It is signed "G. Haller" in the lower left corner and comes in an ornate period gilt frame. This is a beautiful landscape in the fading light of evening, the sky lit with the rosy shades of the setting sun. Although this painting is by a German artist, the dusky light and the deep shadows of the forest are quite reminiscent of the French Barbizon style of landscape painting.
