"MILKING TIME" BY ALBERT REIBMAYR (AUSTRIAN, 1881-1941)
Oil on canvas, signed lower right "A. REIBMAYR 06", lower left "A.R. 1906"
Item # 901VPY23 


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.
