Golden light fills the sky, reflecting off pools of water from which deer drink within the marches, as the sun sets in this serene painting by John Fery (1859-1934). The relaxed, broad brushstrokes of this impressive panoramic landscape painting are indicative of the large Western landscape works by artist Fery. Signed lower right "J. Fery". Measures:
20 ¼ x 36 inches unframed, and 27 ½ x 43 ¼ inches framed. Fery, an Austrian-born artist who immigrated to America in the 1880s, was largely a self-taught artist who was influenced by the school of academic landscape artists, and became well-known for his depictions of the American Northwest as well as his promotional and advertisement work for the Great Northern Railway.
