Peder Mork Monsted (1859-1941): In the Shadow of an Italian Pergola, 1884, oil on canvas 122.5 x 97 cm. (48¼ x 38¼ in.) . . Peder Monsted often depicted landscapes with rich contrasts between light and shadow. He understood the amazing relationship between light and dark areas. The details in his scenes are truly impressive, yet when you get to see them up close, you can see his mastery of values and tonal work as well as the way he utilizes brush strokes to create depth on surfaces. This beautiful outdoor painting by him, depicting a vintage scene in Capri, Italy was sold for 92,500 USD at the Christie's, London in 2001
