Axel Schovelin, Danish Landscape With Lake

Axel Schovelin, Danish Landscape With Lake

A fine 19th-century oil on canvas depicting an extensive view across a lake towards a distant town.

The artist Axel Thorsen Schovelin (1827-1893) was a precocious talent and he joined the Academy of Fine Arts at the age of 12. It’s possible that this is a view from one of the many beautiful wooded areas around Copenhagen as he particularly enjoyed the area.

The painting is signed in the lower left.

Medium: Oil on canvas
Overall size: 41” x 30” / 105cm x 77cm
