Albert Teophron Kjellberg is primarily known for his works on KPM porcelain. Friedrich Wilhelm III is known to have given porcelain paintings by Kjellberg as gifts to the Russian Tsar Nicholas. The present work demonstrates that his fine and detailed style was not only expressed on porcelain. Kjellberg's canvasses rarely appear on the market. The present winter scene depicts a man being rescued from a frozen river in the midst of a snowy village landscape.
Continental private collection.
