Mountain Landscape in Tirol with Chamois, Johannes Tavenraat, c. 1858

oil on panel, h 26.0cm × w 23.0cm × t 1.0cm × d 5.7cm More details

A landscape with towering mountains and insignificant human figures and animals in the foreground are typical elements of a Romantic composition. Tavenraat fell under the spell of the landscape while travelling through Tirol and made countless drawings and oil sketches of it. Here he painted the morning mist in bold gradations of violet. The small mountain hut and the miniscule group of shepherds with their flock make the mountains seem even higher.
