Hans Fredrik Gude

I found out about the Norwegian painter Hans Fredrik Gude (1825-1903) through one of the art groups I follow on facebook, as another Norwegian digital artist (of whom I will talk about later) was doing some studies of his paintings and I thought they were amazing.

He was a romanticist and one of Norway’s most important landscape painters. You can see an incredible clarity and level of detail in all of his paintings with a depth of color that I think no camera can match. Apart from that, the landscapes of his home country are simply stunning by themselves.

I would definitely encourage you to check some more of his artworks online and if you can go to the National Gallery of Norway in Oslo (which I would love to do) go check them out live.
