Hugo Mühlig

The Returning Musicians

Oil on panel. 31.5 x 48.
Signed lower right: Hugo Mühlig..

This motif of musicians returning home in a winter landscape occurs frequently in Mühlig's oeuvre. However, he varies the positions of the other figures and parts of the landscape. The present work shows particular similarity to the version "Winterlandschaft mit heimkehrenden Musikanten" shown in Angelika Baeumerth and Wilhelm Körs publication: Hugo Mühlig 1854-1929. Leben und Werk, Düsseldorf 1997, p.192, no.38.
