Józef Rapackica. 1907

The Sejm - Polish Parliament

Section of a lowland forest landscape, closed perspective, in all probability painted from nature, realistic in style, no staffage. Subject typical for the artist’s mature oeuvre, veristic approach to floral life, colours toned. Title heathers in the foreground with a small cluster of three birches – only trunks visible – and a grassy glade with bare sand patches beyond. In the background, a wall of young pine forest with heath smears visible, a narrow strip of greyish sky topping the entire landscape. Rusty-lilac colour tones with dark green elements convey the atmosphere of autumn.
