Boecklin painted five different versions on this theme, of which four have survived. This is the fourth version.
Nordic Summer Evening (1900), a work by Swedish figurative painter Sven Richard Bergh (1858-1919).
I would wager that Nordisk sommarkväll competes with his portrait of August Strindberg (1905) for the accolade of best known work. Strindberg was a famous Swedish playwright and author, and a painter himself - and also somewhat of a weirdo. Speaking of which, a personage like Strindberg came in handy for Jan Wallentin's debut novel Strindberg's Star, which I would label a good read. With this well documented thriller which combines history, crime, the occult and sci-fi, Wallentin establishes himself somewhat like a Swedish Dan Brown - but I digress.
Compartment C Car 293 (1938) by Edward Hopper (1882-1967).
Hope you enjoyed it.
