A lot of people find Spitzweg a bit cheesy and formulaic. He’s probably more to Teutonic tastes, but his best stuff is fantastic.
This is a typically evocative Alpine scene from a possibly imaginary part of the Tyrol. Spitzweg did bucolic harmony very well, and he had a great sense of ordinary lives in miniature, in the middle of slightly outlandish compositions, which in some ways reminds me of Turner and Claude Lorrain. Bigger names, but not always better painters.
