SCHWIND, Moritz von
(b. 1804, Wien, d. 1871, Niederpöcking)

Landscape with Wanderer

c. 1835

The landscapes of Schwind are poetic and fairytale-like creations. Below a mountain bridge with a view of a distant, hilly landscape a man can be seen sunk in contemplation; the back of the wanderer with a harp slung over his shoulder also has a nostalgic effect.
