Hugo Mühlig

Musicians Returning Home

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

Mühlig depicted the subject of returning musicians in a winter landscape in a number of paintings, thereby varying the landscape and the figural composition. The present painting shows similarities to the painting entitled “Winter Landscape with Returning Musicians (Winterlandschaft mit heimkehrenden Musikanten; cf. Angelika Baeumerth und Wilhelm Körs: Hugo Mühlig 1854-1929. Leben und Werk, Düsseldorf 1997, p. 192, no. 38).
