Description

This ethereal landscape exemplifies Schuffenecker’s best work in pastel. Massive lichen-covered rocks, heightened by flecks of mauve, dominate the foreground, dwarfing a tiny figure who pauses beside a fence to contemplate a golden field of wheat. The artist used a dense network of parallel strokes to create the effect of a shimmering mirage.
