“Harvesting Timber from the Forest”

D Van Ogtrop originated from The Netherlands and was clearly a highly gifted and well-practiced painter, almost certainly art-school tutored, the figures and horses having been so well drawn and nicely composed. This very picturesque scene typically belies the arduous, physically exhausting work so carefully and romantically portrayed here in this rural woodland setting.
