The Swedish artist is known for incorporating biological elements like trees and even insects into exhibitions.
The Norwegian artist J.C. Dahl (1788-1857) is known for his iconic oil paintings in which the most minute details of nature are put on canvas. The first Norwegian artist to be achieve critical acclaim internationally, Dahl did much for the country’s tourism industry, allowing foreigners and Norwegians alike to glimpse at the untamed beauty of Norway’s nature.
The exhibition “J.C. Dahl – The Power of Nature,” at the Kode Art Museum in Bergen, Norway, highlights 200 of Dahl’s masterpieces, including the iconic Birch Tree in a Storm, which brings to life an enormous tree, perched precariously on a hillside while being buffeted by strong winds.
