Eye Candy for Today: Mønsted Summer landscape

Eye Candy: Summer landscape with river floodplain, Peder Mork Monsted
Summer landscape with river floodplain, Peder Mørk Mønsted

On Wikimedia Commons. Original is in a private collection. 32×48 inches (81x121cm)

I love the way paintings like this, and Mønsted’s in particular, look at first to be smoothly finished and refined, but reveal themselves on closer inspection to be wonderfully painterly.

  1. Another great entry. Thank you Charlie.

    A small tip: Wikimedia spells it, “Monsted”, so searching the site with, “Monstead” shows no results.
