Arts Everyday Living: Into the Heart of the Forest—The Flooding Trees

Lovis Corinth, A Forest, Flooding on Starnberg Lake, 1896, oil on canvas, National Museum, Wroclaw, Poland

German artist Lovis Corinth (1858-1925) takes the viewer into the heart of the forest, gradually flooded by the waters of a nearby lake.  His realistic style is typical of Corinth’s early works, in which he details the numerous trees and vegetation of the natural world.
