Rasmus Andersen Holm, View Across Gavnø, Zealand

An easy-going landscape painting depicting a view across the peaceful island of Gavnø in South Zealand, Denmark.

The artist, Rasmus Andersen Holm (1781-1874) has picked a beautiful spot with the large trees on the left casting their long shadows towards the foot of the image. While, further on, a scattering a timber-framed buildings help to guide our eye outwards the evening’s sunlit sky.

The work is signed/dated in the lower right.

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.
