This early 20th-century oil painting by Danish artist Peter Tom-Petersen (1861-1926) depicts a view on the Brahetrolleborg estate.

Beyond a fence with climbing rose bushes, three men tend to an ailing thatch. Their work almost complete under the glare of mid-Summer. Alongside, a canopy of foliage frames a ‘nut walk’ - a garden path flanked by various nut bushes. Tom-Petersen loved it here, returning often to the picturesque environs of Brahetrolleborg, a castle estate on the island of Fyn.

The roots of the impressive Brahetrolleborg Castle date back to the 12th century and it stands amid an estate with various buildings. Tom-Petersen was related to the estate manager’s wife, Maja Elisabeth Cramer, so was assured of a warm welcome. He married Marie Elisabeth Lorentzen, the estate manager’s daughter, at Brahetrolleborg in 1891 and it remained a place close to his heart.

Here, we see a view from around 1905, possibly depicting three friends working on a cottage he knew well.
