More about this artwork
Schack was very attached to this painting and its evocation of Italy: ‘The charm of a green, flowery rise and the shimmering shade of an alley of cypresses will rarely have been depicted as they are here. All the delights of Italy waft towards us from this landscape, which is suffused with the full purity of southern light.’ Böcklin based the picture on a fresco he had painted in Basle in 1868.
