Add To Cart

Albert Julius Olsson was born in 1864 in London to a Swedish father and English mother. Olsson had no formal training and was wholly self taught becoming England's finest marine artist of the late 19th and early 20th century. Olsson's originals hang in countless museums across England and private collections worldwide. His late impressionist style was greatly influenced by the works of Henry Moore which is quite evident in the majority of his compositions.

Albert Julius Olsson created mostly seascapes and views of the coast line from the back of a boat, to find any other subject painting is quite uncommon and rare. This original oil on canvas depicts an uncommon scene of a winter landscape with pink blossomed trees in the background. Painted in his normal late impressionist style their is not one sign of water to be found in this painting. Generally even in his landscape genres he would include a river or some body of water, this is missing one. 

Mostly snow laden bushes and shrubs i the foreground their is a fitting beautiful line of trees blossoming with pink flowers in the top of the work. This pink color adds a much needed contrast with the overall cold blue, white and purple tones. Painted with thick brushstrokes, which can be clearly seen in the close up image, adds a nice texturing when examined.

This oil painting measures approximately 24 x 18 inches which is a common size for his works on canvas. The condition is overall good except a small puncture in the left center, which needs a patch a minor in-painting. Other than this their is a little play in the canvas and expected craquelure from a painting from the turn of the 19th century. Resting in its original gold wood frame with a floral motif it fits the painting exceptionally well but does have a small spot of loss in the low right corner. Their is a partial label on the reverse frame that reads "Rudolph & Co." as well as illegible chalk writing on the back of the canvas and manufacturing rubber stamp. 

The images provided accurately represent the quality, condition and aesthetic beauty of this rare oil painting by Olsson but if you have any questions please feel free to ask prior to purchasing!
