: In the Pasture

Sizes (vertical*horizontal):Unframed:12,2" x 16,5" (31 x 42 cm)

Very fine and cosy rural summertime exterior with three cows in the foreground either quietly grazing or chewing the cud on a sunlit field. In the center background you can see a white thatched farm and in the far background there is a large thicket of trees.
As always with Edsberg, enjoy his fine and precise depiction of the cows, revealing his love for and devotion to domestic animals. Apart from the animals and the landscape notice also the fine light in the bright blue sky with drifting cumulus clouds in the horizon.

A painting (oil on canvas) in good condition and it comes with a nice gilt and ornamented frame with minor scratches and shelling.

It is signed Edsberg in the lower right corner and is ready to hang.

Born on Aug 22nd 1911 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Knud Edsberg is a famous, listed and well-known Danish artist.
Edsberg was one of the best in painting horses and cows, which were his favorite motifs. He made his debut at the Spring Exhibitions of Charlottenborg in 1935 with a painting of his mother. Edsberg's excellent technique as naturalist combined with his highly developed picturesque observation gave him in short time recognition as portrait and animal painter. As a result he has painted hundreds of portraits of important persons in industry, local authorities and national authorities. During the years he has been represented in several private and public collections. As an example he has 48 portraits at the Carlsberg Museum.
Knud Edsberg is considered one of the last naturalistic painters left who were capable of taking over from the Golden Age of Danish Art. His paintings with motifs from his own country are invaluable for future generations.
Since 1945 Edsberg was permanent exhibitor at the Union of National Art.

Knud Edsberg can among other be found in Weilbachs Kunstnerleksikon.
