An expressive mid-century winter landscape by Latvian artist, Imants Sinka (1915-1993).
In the centre of the composition, a track cuts its way through a snow-covered field towards several small buildings - with the snow being comprised of thick textured marks that catch the bright sun. While beyond the buildings, a distant forest dominates the horizon.
Sinka was born in Riga and moved to Sweden in 1944 as a refugee. He was self-taught and undertook several study trips to European destinations. His work was often exhibited during his lifetime and he’s represented at the Värmlands Museum.
The painting is signed in the lower right and housed within an appropriate frame.
