Pine Marten

Creation year


Unlike other marten species, the pine marten avoids the vicinity of settlements and inhabits large areas of forest. In this picture, the animal seems to be posing for the artist against the backdrop of a snow-covered winter forest. Typical of Fritz’s painting style of this period, the animal’s surroundings are carefully composed and painted down to the detail.
