Fairytale, Matthijs Maris, c. 1877

oil on panel, h 18cm × w 38cm × d 9cm More details

After having worked on canvas for a long time, Maris here once again chose a wood panel as his support. He first painted the woman, then her immediate surroundings, and lastly the sky. The smooth wood gave him the freedom to play with different brushwork: the sky and the woman are thinly brushed with diluted oil paint resembling watercolour, while the foliage is rendered with spirited short strokes.
