Landscape With Farm

This spirited early 20th-century oil painting by Swedish artist Justus Lundegård (1860-1924) depicts a buoyant summertime view with a farm, field hand and buildings.

Lundegård’s joy is palpable - standing alongside a winding track, he’s consumed by nature’s beauty. Seeking not to embellish or enliven, he captures the view with its imperfections intact. A crooked track winds its way through a rickety gate, drawing the eye towards the bright facade of a timber-framed farmhouse. While the trees lean and stretch their branches as if breaking into song.

Note also Lundegård’s clever use of colour - the furthest tree is partially rendered in dark blue, which brings greater contrast to the white building in the distance.

Justus Lundegård was a pioneer who rallied against his formal academic education to pursue impressionism. This is a fine example of his animated use of colour, passion for light, and commitment to working outdoors.

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.
