Thomas Fearnley (1802-1842): oil sketches from the collection of Asbjorn Lunde

At TEFAF 2019, Day & Faber will be presenting a collection of oil sketches on paper by the Norwegian artist Thomas Fearnley (1802-1842). They come directly from the estate of Asbjorn Lunde. The majority were exhibited at the London National Gallery’s exhibition, 'Forests, Rocks and Torrents: Norwegian and Swiss Landscapes from the Lunde Collection' in 2011 and at the Barber Institute’s exhibition 'In Front of Nature: The European Landscapes of Thomas Fearnley' in Birmingham in 2012-2013. Asbjorn Lunde (1927 – 2017), a New Yorker of Norwegian descent, formed, during his long life, the world’s leading private collection of 19th century Norwegian and Swiss landscape paintings.
