How would you describe the mood in this painting? Evening West Rampart Street, Copenhagen (1919) was painted by the Danish artist Paul Gustav Fischer (1860-1934). Fischer was known as "the city painter" as he specialized in capturing the people, architecture, and moods of cities. He started first by capturing his hometown Copenhagen, but as his fame rose around the turn of the 20th century, he painted cities all over Scandinavia, Germany, and Italy. In this painting, we do not only see a snapshot of life in Copenhagen 100 years ago (with the tram, car, and the electric street lights. Fischer also captures a mood. We cannot look the people straight in the eye, but it feels like a relatively (but not too) cold winter evening, where people are strolling through the city center. The lights in the distance suggest that some shops may still be open and maybe people are out for some holiday shopping. #Art #Painting #Artwork #ArtHistory #HistoryofArt #OilPainting #OilonCanvas #Copenhagen #Denmark #Fischer #Danish #DanishArt #DanishArtist #DanishPainter #Mood #Winter #Evening #CityLife #City #Tram #Car #ElectricLight #Atmosphere #Cold
