19th-Century Danish School, Landscape With Rustic Cottage

19th-Century Danish School, Landscape With Rustic Cottage

This charming 19th-century oil on canvas depicts a run-down rural cottage with a partially remaining thatch. It stands amid overgrown flora and feels lost in time. Can you imagine when the artist stumbled across this on a walk through the fields? Perhaps leaning in the doorway to explore the interior.

Stylistically, it’s reminiscent of painters working in the circle of Gustav Vermehren (1863-1931).

Housed within a handsome period frame with foliate corners and centres.

Medium: Oil on canvas laid on board
Overall size: 19½” x 17” / 49cm x 43cm
Year of creation: c. 1890
Condition: Artwork presents well. Frame with some light wear.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
