A SPECIAL REPRODUCTION of the famous painting "Row of Trees" by Jan Mankes.
On the 26th of April it's been 100 years since Jan Mankes died. He was only 30 years of age. He studied and sketched his subjects until he knew them by heart.
After that, he painted his compositions purely from memory.
His paintings therefore do not reflect reality as much as they highlight the essence of his subject. He painted countless birds and farm animals and dreamy romantic landscapes, of which the famous Row of Trees is a beautiful example.
