Eine Alpe

Eine Alpe

More about this artwork
Schack regarded Schleich as the leading landscape painter of his generation in Munich and acquired three pictures by him. They included this rare Alpine view, which he described as follows: ‘It is an alp in the rear Ziller valley, in which a herd is grazing on luxuriant grass apparently just drenched in rain and in which the view beyond drifting mist to snowy peaks glowing in the sun creates a highly picturesque effect.’
