Kristen Holbo (1869-1953) Norwegian Oil/Canvas Pastoral Landscape qqoo

Up for sale is antique 1916 original oil on canvas painting by Norwegian artist Kristen Holbo (1869-1953). This pastoral landscape is titled “Fra Boneslun” (“Sheep in a pasture”) and it is very well executed employing a sophisticated knowledge of light, color and perspective.

The painting itself is measuring about 26” (66 cm) by 21 ½” (55 cm), and the frame is about 30” (76 cm) by 25” (64 cm).

It is signed by the artist in the lower left corner, and inscribed at the back “Fra Boneslun” and dated 1916 in the upper left corner of the stretcher, inscribed “Fil Jorgensen... III/26” in pencil in the right corner of the stretcher.

This painting would be a very sound investment and a great addition to any collection.
