Frederik C. Kiærschou, At Favrskov In Jutland

DESCRIPTION

A 19th-century oil painting depicting a beautiful sunset over a wooded area of Favrskov in Jutland, Denmark.

The artist, Frederik Christian Jakobsen Kiærskou (1805-1891), has used a masterful graduation of tone that moves a burnt orange hue through to a hazy light blue. These beautiful colours are then reflected in the water, which is dappled with foliage and lined by trees.

Kiærskou was trained by the well-known landscape painter, Jens Peter Møller, (1783-1854) and later became a member of the Royal Danish Art Academy. In 1963, he was commissioned to paint a depiction of Bernstorff Castle for Princess Alexandra of Denmark to celebrate her marriage to Edward VII.

The painting is signed and dated 1868 on the reverse. It also has a later illegible inscription.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price. For those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish. We always try to source frames that are appropriate for the age of the painting but can also provide contemporary alternatives if you prefer. You only pay for the cost of the actual frame (usually £30 - £50) as we include the labour for free.
