Long Description:
Dansk: Harald Giersing fandt sit motiv til Landevej til Svanninge omtrent her. Han var i 1917 blevet gift med Fritz Sybergs datter Besse, og det unge par havde fået Poppelhuset i Svanninge i bryllupsgave af Syberg. Harold Giersing malede flere malerier med motiver fra landskabet omkring Svanninge. Han var optaget af, hvordan vejens forløb og træernes kroner danner næsten geometriske former. Maleriet tilhører Faaborg Museum.
