Zeeland Landscape

In this painting, Lundbye have strived to express the overall qualities of the Danish countryside, and with his chosen title he seeks to emphasise the general nature of the scene. A central feature of the painting is the winding road, which may be interpreted as an expression of the artist's existential ruminations.
