Dahl, Hans, Norwegian painter (1849-1937). Autograph quotation signed.

Balestrand, 21. VIII. 1911.

Oblong 8vo (postcard). 1 page.


Inscribed to the German dermatologist Alwin Scharlau: "Sehr gerne komme ich Ihrem Wunsche entgegen und sende Ihnen hierbei das Erwünschste [!] […]".

Best known for his views of Norwegian fjords, Dahl excelled at painting waters in movement, enlivening his landscapes with genre scenes evoking Norwegian national Romanticism, a style that was heavily criticized for not complying with up-and-coming Modernism around 1880.

Self-addressed by the collector on the reverse. The Mecklenburg physician Scharlau (b. 1888) assembled a collection of artists' autographs by personal application.
