In 1887, on his return from France, Nils Kreuger (1858-1930) settled in Varberg, a coastal town situated 70 km south of Gothenburg, in the province of Halland. In 1893, he was joined there by his friends and collegues Richard Bergh (1858-1919) and Karl Nordström. Together they founded what became known as Varbergsskolan (The School of Varberg) which greatly contributed to the creation of a pure national romantic style as a reaction to realistic landscape painting in the French manner.
