In this oil on wood panel painting, Robert Richter places the viewer at the foot of a path that wraps around and beyond a small apple tree. The tree, with its ruby apples, casts a cool shadow in the foreground, the deep green of which fades into yellows as the landscape recedes into the distance. Richter's minimal use of line for the landscape suggests shrubs and growth, but the simplicity leaves the space to the imagination. The ambiguity privileges faint memory over direct observation, and is part of Richter's working process.
