This painting is unlike any other Mechau. It is beautiful and certainly dramatic, its moonlit linear features as boldly delineated as they are delicate, two strange cathedral-like mountain forms, an unearthly Ponderosa Pine, and dream-like deer floating across an austere foreground. Frank Mechau was an intellectually curious, gifted self-taught artist and teacher, respectful of artistic traditions produced in China, Japan, and the Middle East, and Europe. He loved to experiment with a variety of design and painting techniques, so it may well be that this fascinating painting was a product of his creative mind.
