Hans Sandreuter: Wooded Landscape

  • Hans Sandreuter studied art in Munich, having travelled there in 1873 on the recommendation of his compatriot Arnold Böcklin. He later followed Böcklin to Florence before returning to live in Basel in 1855. The influence of the great symbolist master was long evident in his compositions. Sandreuter turned to printmaking relatively late in his career, producing a number of printed works using the technique of woodcuts and etchings in 1899 and 1900.
