    With brightly lit paintings like this, Frich was something of an odd man out among the landscape painters of 19th-century Norway, who tended to be truer to nature. When he was commissioned by Oscar I to produce six works for the dining room of the summer palace of Oscarshall, near Oslo, they were considered too decorative. This painting is strikingly similar to those images, and may have served as a reminder of Oscarshall back at the Royal Palace in Stockholm.
