'Cows at Pasture' 19th Century Dutch Pastoral Oil Painting by Hendrik Savrij

About

This 19th century landscape painting by Dutch artist Hendrik Savrij (1823-1907) is entitled "Cows at Pasture". This pastoral scene features a small herd of cattle gathered around on the lazy banks of a river, perhaps in the hopes of catching a slight breeze. A calf gingerly walks to his mother, who is laying on the ground, greeting the viewer head on. Only she is aware of the beholder's presence as the other cows turn focus on the water. In the distance, the vague outline of a romantic medieval castle is visible just beyond the forest. The artist used many different techniques to create this overall image of tranquility, but none so important as his magnificent use of color. Here, we see the artist applying an outstanding amount of muted tones to this piece, blending each image together so that the viewer's gaze glides smoothly over the subjects without distraction. Savrij is a master of contrast as well as color. He contrasts the lush, overgrown field with the dry mud in between the grass, the flatness of the fields with the verticality of the trees and castle in the background, and finally the large piece of land with the cloudy sky. Signed lower left, the canvas itself measures 24" H x 42" W. It is set inside a nicely carved giltwood frame with shell motifs and volutes.
