Winter Scene in the Alps

Signed "Ivan F. Choultsé" (lower right) 

Oil on canvas

"The most perfect expression of nature seen from an open window in which light is depicted with a strength and reality never before equaled·and that which fascinates above all is the freshness and harmonious strength of his coloring."
-Reaction to Choultsé's showing at Edouard Jonas Gallery, New York, 1928 

No other painter meticulously executed the majesty of winter with the same artistic brilliance as Russian landscapist Ivan Fedorovich Choultsé. In Winter Scene in the Alps, a visual bounty is presented to the viewer of a remote, snow laden village at the foot of the great Alps mountain range. The terrain is drenched in white, which radiates with a golden glow as the sun dances across the land and the gentle stream that winds through it. Through his mastery of light and technique, Choultsé creates a scene of striking realism and matchless beauty. 

Considered among the foremost European landscape painters, Choultsé first exhibited at the Academie des Beaux-Arts in Petrograd, Russia, in 1903, where he garnered tremendous acclaim for his winter landscapes. He soon became a highly sought-after exhibitor of all the major galleries in Moscow and Petrograd. This attention led to his greatest honor-his appointment as the court painter for Czar Nicolas II. 

After the Russian Revolution of 1917, and due to his association with the Czar, Choultsé fled to Paris to escape potential persecution. His showing at the Salon of 1923 proved to the catapult of his career, exposing the world to his magnificent snowy landscapes. In fact, his subsequent, multiple one-man showings in locales such as Paris, London and New York were so successful that each and every painting sold within a day or so of the show opening.
