athousandwinds: Wintry Day at the City Gate, Munich, Germany, 1890, oil on canvas, by Anders Andersen-Lundby, Danish, 1841-1923, impressionist artist specializing in winter landscapes. Last at Giesing auction house in Munich, Germany. Lundby exhibited for the first time in 1864 as his winter paintings became the most popular and it is easy to see why. These subtle colors all lend a sense of cold to the scene as the world is covered in snow and frost.
