Lars Hertervig, 1830-1902

He was born on Borgøya, an island outside the western coast of Norway. As an adult, he suffered from mental illness and melancholia, but he never stopped working on his art. He also spent years of his life in deepest poorness, but history tells that he painted every day, the last 30 years of his life. Lars Hertervig is a treasure in the Norwegian art history; his works are filled with an enigmatic kind of magic and beauty, - he painted the most beautiful skies I ever have seen in art.
