Catalogue Note

Now part of Potsdam, Germany, the picturesque town of Eiche is home to the parks and palaces of Sanssouci, nestled between the river Havel and multiple lakes, including the Tiefer See and Jungfernsee. In the present work, Peder Mønsted places his easel on the water's edge, deep in the green forest. With his characteristic saturated palette and sharp attention to detail and light effects, he includes a solitary fisherman to convey the spirit of this luminous bend in the river.
