Die Waldkapelle

Die Waldkapelle

More about this artwork
Her back to the altar, a young woman has sat down on a prie-dieu outside a chapel, presumably to rest on her way through the forest. The tranquil scene is rendered in gentle colour harmonies, the green of nature combined with the grey and ochre of the chapel. The paint is applied fluently over pencil outlines reinforced with pen and ink.
