"WANDERLUST": European Landscapes by Thomas Fearnley

Over the last fifteen years we have exhibited and sold over twenty works by the Norwegian landscape artist Thomas Fearnley (1802 - 1842). In 2012 a major exhibition of his work “In Front of Nature” was staged at the Barber Institute in Birmingham. It was accompanied by an excellent catalogue, the only monograph in English on the artist.
