Vilhelm Hammershøi (b. Copenhagen 1864, d. s.p. 1916)

A landscape with a plowed field, in the background green hills. To the right in the foreground a few slender trees. C. 1880. Unsigned. Oil on canvas. 13.5×24.

Provenance: The collection of curator Harald Olsen. Thence by descent.

Harald Olsen was a curator at the National Gallery of Denmark 1949–83 and good friends with Alfred Bramsen's daughter, Karen Bramsen (1877–1970) and her husband Gustav Falck (1874–1955), who from 1925 to 1930 was director of the National Gallery of Denmark. Most of the works by Vilhelm Hammershøi in Harald Olsen's collection were probably acquired directly from Karen Bramsen.
