Oil on canvas, signed lower right A. REIBMAYR 06", lower left "A. A fine work depicting a farmer's wife milking the cows at dusk as the evening sky turns golden and shadows grow long.
Executed in oil on canvas, the work is housed in a somewhat later carved giltwood frame. With a touch of impressionism in the details, Reibmayr honors technical exactness with a thoughtful approach to anatomy and proportions.Best known perhaps for his paintings of horses, this is a sensitive work that exudes a peacefulness in the light of hard work, the nostalgia of quietude and simplicity imbue the work with a certain romanticism. Beautifully restored and an exquisite presentation, this is a fine acquisition from an artist found very infrequently on the open market.
