Søren Josva Christensen was predominantly known as a landscape painter but also produced portraits and interior scenes. In around 1920, he moved to Skörping Stationsby in northern Denmark, which is close to ‘Rebild Bakker’, an impressive mountain range. It’s an area that has inspired many artists over the years due to its beauty and abundant scenery.
The painting is signed in the lower left.
