Rhubarb and Young Girl at Sandalstrand

A young girl reaches up to snap the budding flower off a rhubarb plant. Below the girl and the rhubarb we can see Astruptunet, and the steep slope that Astrup painstakingly formed into a terrace garden. Astrup began building the large house in 1920, and moved into it around 1926. Before this, the family lived in the two small cabins we see beside the main house. On the second floor is Astrup’s studio. There was no staircase inside the house, so the entrance to the studio was from the ramp leading up to the hayloft. Astrup managed to use the studio for only a few years before his death in 1928.
