Martinus Antonius Kuytenbrouwer the younger (1821–1897)

Do you see how relaxed the scene is? How the young white sheep in the front is still following her mum? How the sheep dog is communicating with the shepherd? Can you smell the grass and see the Dutch church in the background? Do you see the last bit of sun breaking through the heavy clouds and lighting up the green meadow behind the flock of sheep?

      1. I grew up in southern Germany in a very small village. We had a shepherd in the area every year. My friend and I visited him each time and accompanied him with his sheep. He even let us watch the ewes lambing. He would carry the littlest ones when they were too tired to walk very far. The man we walked with had done this for 40 years by then.


  1. Seriously awesome! Really a lovely painting. Sometimes I wonder how much artistic ability is inherited, or whether some families just appreciate art more and therefore have more artists in them. I like your grass posts too!


  2. So nice to find artistic family roots!
    I love this painting, there’s so much harmony and peace in it.
    The weather today looks just like this one on the painting.
    Wish you a beautiful week Paula!


    1. Nina, you are probably in the most beautiful spot in Norway. No wonder you make art and photography! Your ‘chocolate’ cows are wonderful. I can look at them for some time too. They make me so calm while they go about their grazing.


    1. That is great. I love it when somebody can bring a painting to life. I admire those who can change my aversion info admiration by bringing a picture to life for me, or telling me more about the artist.
      Many thanks.
