'' Winter Landscape ''
Oil on board
16.5 x 15.5 in (42 x 40 cm) framed approx
A beautiful signed and dated 1928 post-impressionist oil on board winter landscape with a red dog kennel by Swedish artist Lars Boëthius . In the mid 1920s Boëthius was heavily influenced by the French post-impressionist painter Henri Rousseau, which is clearly evident in this work. The dog kennel is a wonderfully unusual addition.
Very good condition.
Lars Daniel Boëthius was born in Stockholm on 23rd September 1903.
Boëthius attended Althins Målarskola, the Painting School established (in 1896) by the Swedish artist Caleb Althin (1866-1918) for a year in 1920 and Konstakademien (Academy of Fine Arts), Stockholm (1921-1923).
In the mid 1920s Boëthius was heavily influenced by the French post-impressionist painter Henri Rousseau (1844-1910). Boëthius exhibited at Svensk-Franska Konstgalleriet (Swedish-French Art Gallery), Stockholm in 1927, 1928 and 1929. Established in 1918 by Gösta Olson (1883-1966) the gallery became the main dealer in twentieth-century art in Sweden. Bukowski's took over the auction side of the business in the early 1970s. In 1928, Boëthius exhibited alongside Sven Erixson (1899-1970) and Thorwald Alef (1896-1974)
Boëthius travelled to Paris in 1930.
Other exhibitions include Galerie Moderne, Stockholm (1933) and at Elsa Lindström's 'Modern Konst i Hemmiljö' (Modern art in the home), Storgatan 48, Stockholm in 1938 and 1940; Gävle (1942) and Örnsköldsvik (1945).
