Choultse loved creating scenes of the landscape, sky, moon and plants. He was a 'singer of nature' and undoubtedly worshipped the snow and water most of all. His artistic world is without people or animals. Like this piece, his preferred landscape is a winter view. Thanks to his lengthy trip to Europe during the uncertainty of the revolutionary years, his pieces frequently depict the Swiss Alps, southern France and northern Italy. He was called a "magician of light" because of an almost magic realism of his paintings. DIMENSIONS: (unframed) 20.0 x 23.8 ins / 50.8 x 60.5 cm SIGNATURE: Signed ‘Iw.
