LITERATURE: Ketterer Kunst, Munich, auction on March 31, 2007, lot 1211 (with illu.).

Initially, many of Lier’s views of the Alpine foothills were set around Lake Starnberg. In this painting, Lier experiments with a compositional line of sight that stretches from the viewer’s elevated vantage point along the sloping shores across the vast countryside, before finally offering a glimpse of the sweeping Alpine panorama silhouetted in subtle blue. Inspired by Eduard Schleich the Elder and, following his trip to Paris in 1861, the French outdoor painters, Lier employed the mountain backdrop as a hazy element framing the expanse of the scene, rather than as the main motif. For the most part, he concentrated on the characteristic landscape of Upper Bavaria with its rolling hills, idyllically broken up and animated by casually inserted small staffage figures and traces of human life, like these modest farmhouses near Murnau. Depicted in the distinctive extended format of the Munich School, the sweeping landscape is suffused with calm serenity as the shadows lengthen in the evening sun. Lier’s vistas invariably possess an idyllic soulfulness that perfectly captures the essence of this region. [KT]
