Hans Best, Tranquil River Landscape

This far-reaching early 20th-century landscape painting by German artist Hans Best (1874-1942) depicts a tranquil vista with distant hills. Its large size creates a window on your wall - it brings the outdoors in.

Through the centre of the composition, a river draws the eye and carries our attention out towards the middle ground. Gentle ripples reflect sunlight muted by clouds while the riverbank creates a shadow at the bend.

Best isn’t seeking to romanticise this verdant countryside, he’s simply capturing it in all its true beauty. By doing so, it creates a calm splendour.

Signed, inscribed on the reverse and framed.

Due to its size, it’s only available for UK delivery.
