Robert Zünd’s mastery of detail and precise brushstrokes allowed him to enrich his landscapes with lyrical and expressive imagery. In the majority of cases, the works show scenes from central Switzerland and the region around Lake Lucerne.
In the present work, a shepherdess in traditional costume with a bright-red apron and a red headscarf guides a herd of white and brown sheep through the scenery, passing a pond whose surface is broken by reeds. The accents of red are typical for Robert Zünd’s work, and are reminiscent of “The harvest” from 1859/60 – arguably his best-known painting - in which a woman carries a basket with a red cloth on her head.
The present work is one of the most beautiful and impressive paintings by the artist.
