Description

Fiala describes the present work as follows: 'In the foreground is a lake, on the surface of which one sees the brownish reeds and the tall thick trees visible on the right hand side of the canvas. On the left hand side are two fir trees and a view of a forest in the distance. The dusk sky is yellowing; the green of the trees is darkening. It is a lyrical work delicately executed in the signature style of this sensitive master artist.' He notes the semi-erased signature and indistinct inscription 'To dear Yuri...' on the reverse.
