Tony Kraps (American, active late 20th to early 21st century), oil on canvas, ca. 1980s to 1990s. A magical landscape - almost ethereal in tone - of a mountain lake under moonlight, shrouded in blue hues reminiscent of Pablo Picasso's Blue Period when the master painted near monochromatic paintings in cool shades of blue and blue-green. Kraps captures the scene at a particularly quiet time of day. We see no human or animal denizens, only evergreens, snow-capped hills and mountainsides, a hint of their reflections in the lake below, and in the sky above - a few delicate snowflakes and a crescent moon.
