Georg Fischhof
A shepherd and sheep in an alpine landscape

About

The verdant scene entitled “A Shepherd and Sheep in an Alpine Landscape” by the Austrian artist Georg Fischhof celebrates the Barbizon splendor of nature, but with a solid Impressionist touch. Overshadowed by the towering timbers, a shepherd tends to his flock which grazes nearby in a cool glade. The splayed branches and lush foliage, manifested through dabs of color and the stippling of paint, are juxtaposed by the placid lake and picturesque beauty of the open sky. The rendering of this idyllic landscape is stylistically reminiscent of the earlier Barbizon School painters who delighted in the portrayal of the unspoiled countryside. However, the lighter tonality of Fischhof’s work and the careful attention to the play of light indicates the artist’s awareness of the tenets of Impressionism.
