(German, 1858–1925)

Charcoal with orange pastel and white gouache

Support: Beige(2) wove paper

A seasoned draftsman, Corinth produced more than 2,000 drawings over the course of his life. An elaborate crosshatch pattern of tightly packed charcoal lines creates this naturalistic view of a wooded landscape. The pale sky, described with white gouache on a tan sheet, suggests a cold, gray day; the palette is restrained except for a vibrant square of orange delineating the roof of a shed.
