Fjord at Holmestrand, 1843
Johan Christian Clausen Dahl (Norwegian, 1788-1857)
"Now a young Norwegian had come to Dresden, who caused a sensation among the students. It was Christian Dahl. A large Nordic mountain landscape of his at the art exhibition caused a tremendous sensation, and it is difficult to imagine what effect a work of such striking natural truth would have under the hawser of the other shadowy, lifeless, mannered paintings. Only Dahl's friend Friedrich made an exception with his "quite original, poetically conceived and deeply melancholic landscape paintings". Johan Christian Dahl, who had settled in Dresden in 1818, remained closely associated with his Norwegian homeland throughout his life. Due to his preference for seacoasts, mountain regions, waterfalls, ships and harbours in daylight or moonlight, he described himself as a "more Nordic artist". Already as a student in Copenhagen, Dahl had developed this inclination, preferring to dedicate himself to "nature in its wild state [...], namely the areas of mighty sceneries with mountains and forests" (Dahl, quoted from ibid.). Dahl's artistic concept was rooted in the early romantic ideas that had been familiar to him since his student days in Copenhagen: currents of sensitivity and the Ossian cult as well as a growing interest in Nordic antiquity and mythology shaped the cultural life of the Danish capital at that time. Like the 'Swede' Caspar David Friedrich, the Norwegian Dahl wanted to contrast the classical image of Italy with the Nordic landscape. Both artists repeatedly travelled to the places of their childhood and found inspiration for their artistic work there. Dahl made a total of five trips to Norway.He wrote to a friend that "I was told that Norway was as beautiful as Switzerland [...] and when I see the bad prospects of Norway, it is as if a magnet attracts me there to represent a better picture" Reddit.com
