Isarlandschaft is a work that spells out the incomparable stature of rustic beauty and scenery painting. The work by Albert Zimmerman
depicts very little as to any incident, but the presence of this environment in its heyday is an occasion in itself. The region’s exact location is unclear to me, but it should be somewhere in Germany, whose natural beauty is often an untold mystery. The region is even more captivating for the forests that rustle with heterogeneous colors amid vast grassland plains, history-sheathing mountains and a sky beyond which God loves playing with subtle colors.
Life in and around Isarlandscaft is probably the most enriching experience possible for the sensitive soul. Although it does not have too many people to balm your loneliness all the time, it probably gives you a sense of pride as a German. The weather is all-inviting, and a little shed here can bring the joy of living in a mansion at any other European countryside. Rustic roads and reared-up footways may have gotten replaced by tarmac today, but they are hardly visible in the rich blend of velvety grass, silver lakes and bushy trees.
Unlike the landscape on the horizon, the region in the foreground is more habitable. It could pass as the locals’ favorite picnic spot.
However, it is more than just a place to be enjoyed. The virtues of nature are in full bloom, and it is visible to everyone irrespective of their genetic perspectives. No one really knows if what Zimmerman painted actually exists today, but the best part about paintings like these, is that I get to know what German countryside feels like, not just to the eyes, but the nose, flesh and sinews! Crafted to perfection, this scenery is captured within 4 and 3 feet on either edge of the canvas in oil.
