Today I start with this Munnings painting, Lumbermen Among The Pines.
An April Day In The Forest is the title of this one.
A Team Log-Skidding In The Forest (Jura) is the title of this moody painting capturing men and horses at work.
Here we see Four-Horse Team In The Forest.
A Black Team In The Jammer features a device called a jammer, meant to ease some of the workload.
This is The Grey Team.
Log Loading is seen here.
A very well known work in Finland too.ReplyDelete
These painters were the photographers of their time ! Without them we wouldn't know how they lived, worked and dressed.ReplyDelete
Interesting. My grandfathers ran horse and bullock teams to get timber from the forests like this.ReplyDelete
It would be common in family backgrounds.Delete
Wonderful work again.ReplyDelete
Interesting exhibit! Happy Sunday, have a wonderful week!ReplyDelete
Working in the forests was a dangerous occupation.ReplyDelete
In many ways.Delete

Wow, what a header!ReplyDelete
These are fabulous paintingsReplyDelete
Yes they are.Delete
It was a completely different technology at that time. It was much better for the forest too.ReplyDelete
As always your header was FABULOUS ! What interesting and wonderful paintings of a time ago.ReplyDelete
A wonderful record of the work involved. I like an April Day in the Forest.ReplyDelete
In that first painting, the workmen look like they are putting themselves in a bit of danger.ReplyDelete
Painters like these were the photographers of their time and it is such a good thing paintings are saved for us to see.ReplyDelete
All the best Jan
I wish I could draw or paint that that. It's wonderful. I love realism.ReplyDelete
There certainly is a moodiness to his paintings.ReplyDelete
