An Apple Tree Cradled by Zephyr

By Katrina Tracuma – View Artist’s Profile ➤

This en plein air piece was painted near the Pēterlauku mill, located in Jelgava municipality, Latvia. The mill was constructed (from 1860 to 1870) and inhabited by its architect Fridrich Shmit. It is a Dutch-type windmill and is one of the best mechanized windmills in Latvia, which operated even until 1950. A couple of years ago, the first “Wind Museum” in the Baltics was located there. Now the mill is undergoing reconstruction, after being in ruins and abandoned for a couple of years. The apple orchard surrounding the property has witnessed all these changes throughout the passing of time. The trees bear sweet fruits, and dance in gusts of zephyr against a backdrop of encircling fields. With the Latvian University of Biosciences and Technologies teaching and research farm “Pēterlauki” located nearby.
