Landscape with a Pond
…by the famous artist Patrick Nasmyth
Several large trees almost appear bent under the weight of the coming storm in this lovely landscape painting by the famous Scottish artist Patrick Nasmyth (1886-1831). Dark clouds tell of bad weather coming or going. Nasmyth most likely availed himself of his homemade shelter in order to sketch such ominous clouds without worry of getting wet.
