Like his fellow-countryman, Albert Bierstadt, Frederick Schafer studied art in Dusseldorf. The romantic realism of the Dusseldorf style is evident in this pastoral scene of cows meandering beside a quiet pond. Unlike impressionist brushwork, the grasses and trees here are precise. The reflection of the clouds brings the water to life, accented by the dark shadows at pond-s edge. Is this an actual landscape near Monterey? Or, like Bierstadt, did Schaefer take liberties with the reality of a scene?
