This impressionist painting from 1891 is by Swedish artist Carl Trägårdh. It depicts a landscape with a farmer boy and cows, painted with a lot of spontaneity and think layer of paint. The colours are bright and clear. Trägårdh studied at the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts in Stockholm from 1881 to 1883. He moved to France, where he became a resident for the rest of his life. He exhibited both in France (Bordeaux. 1891) and in Sweden (Helsingborg. 1897; Gothenburg. 1898) and at the World's Columbian Exposition during 1893 in Chicago. He received a couple of medals and found a patron in the French singer and art collector Jean-Baptiste Faure, who bought some 40 paintings by him. Trägårdh had a short life ended at only 38, which is why his production is quite limited; his production often consisted of landscapes featuring pastoral scenes. Trägårdh is represented at the Nationalmuseum, Gothenburg Art Museum, Prince Eugen's Waldemarsudde and Lund University, to name a few.
