Laurits Andersen Ring often painted the small village of Baldersbrønde on Zealand, Denmark’s largest island, where he lived for a number of years. This painting is a fine example of his unsentimental approach to the realities of rural life. He uses an almost monochrome colour scheme to create a bleak winter scene. Despite the apparent simplicity of the painting, Ring demonstrates a sophisticated understanding of composition and perspective, as the strong diagonals of the road, hedge and line of trees are countered by the verticals of each tree and the upward thrust of the steep roofs. The frame is almost certainly original, its simple format based upon a design favoured at the Copenhagen Salon’s annual exhibition around the turn of the century.
