Downy Night

Olje på lerret, 1902 - 1911

Ukjent eier

There are no known descriptions or photographs of this painting, but Astrup’s title indicates that it is a landscape painting with a damp or misty atmosphere. There are two other paintings with the same title, Downy Night (K10 and K45), which were both in Isabella and Sigurd Høst’s collection at the time of the memorial exhibitions in Bergen and Kristiania (Oslo) in 1928.

The painting “Downy Night” was on sale at Astrup’s exhibition at Kunstnerforbundet (artists’ association) in 1911. Its price was 200 kroner, but it was not sold. According to the association’s records, the picture was sent to Rasmus Meyer (1858–1916) in Bergen, but he isn’t recorded as the purchaser of the work. The history of the painting after 1911 is therefore unknown.
