Carsten Henrichsen, Rural Landscape With Children

Carsten Henrichsen, Rural Landscape With Children

A fine 19th-century landscape painting depicting two children walking along a rural track under a bright sky. The artist, Carsten Henrichsen (1824-1897), has captured the scenery perfectly and we particularly like the building on the left, which provides balance to the composition.

Henrichsen trained at the Royal Academy in Copenhagen and received the Neuhausen Award in 1855. He often painted scenes along the Danish coastline and his works are held in private collections worldwide.

The painting is monogrammed in the lower right, dated, and housed within a 19th-century gilded frame that’s probably the original.
