Louis Apol (1850-1936)
Dimensions work: 38 x 54 cm

Provenance: Private collection, the Netherlands
Unlike his Hague predecessors, his paintings do not emphasise fabrication. Nature plays the leading role, in all its solitude. No merry little scenes full of life and movement, no carnival on ice. Apol depicts nature speaking for itself, impressive, picturesque and in its simplicity. His winter landscapes make it feel as if the viewer is taking a walk in the woods himself. The fresh powder snow on the bare branches breathes the icy silence of a desolate forest. Often Apol depicts only a few figures, a hiker with a dog or a logger with a horse and cart. The path you walk on is man-made, but still exudes the tranquillity of untouched nature.
