Catalogue Note

Shishkin’s oil studies often provide the best insights into his experimentation with faktura. Particularly characteristic here are the upward brushstrokes of the tussocks of grass and the long thin and dry brushwork of the root systems, which he would sometimes draw with the reverse end of the paint-brush. The mint greens, the greys and faint purple hue to the sandy path are hallmarks of Shishkin’s forest scenes and Merikyul landscapes.
