Oil Study

Technique: unknown, 1899 - 1928

Unknown owner

There are no known descriptions or photographs of this study.

When Astrup died in 1928, the study was inherited by his widow Engel Astrup (1892–1966). At the memorial exhibitions in Bergen and Kristiania (Oslo) that same year, several of the pictures in the widow’s collection were put up for sale, but this study was not one of them. Most likely it was returned to Engel Astrup, and its subsequent history is unknown.

The study may be one of the oil sketches the Norwegian National Gallery bought from Engel Astrup in 1949.
