Johann Baptist Kirner

Italian peasant family, coming down from the mountain, 1835

About the object

A shepherd and his family trek over a stony mountain path with their animals, bathed in the soft evening light. A boy playing a musical instrument leads the way. The romanticised image of Italian country life was praised by Kirner’s contemporaries owing to its lightness and vivacity.
