Frederik Christian Jakobsen Kiaerskou, Landscape With Deer & Pond

Frederik Christian Jakobsen Kiaerskou, Landscape With Deer & Pond

A 19th-century oil painting depicting a beautiful view across a lake on the edge of a picturesque forest. The artist, Frederik Christian Jakobsen Kiaerskou (1805-1891), has captured the light beautifully as it falls across the scene - with the trees creating rippling reflections in the water.

Kiaerskou was particularly adept at graduated skies and well-versed in handling light. He 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 housed within a gilded period frame and inscribed on the reverse.

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.
