Footnotes

  • Frits Thaulow began his artistic training at the academy in Copenhagen, and because he originally wanted to be a marine painter, the young artist studied with the Danish marine specialist C. F. Sørenson. Thaulow spent two winters at Karlsruhe where he studied with Hans Gude and then moved on to Paris in 1875. He remained in the French capital four years and exhibited at the Paris Salon. While in Paris, he developed an understanding of French Realist art and particularly the art of Jules Bastien-Lepage.

    Upon his return from Paris, Thaulow spent some time in the artists' colony at Skagen and then moved on to Oslo, remaining in Norway until 1892. During this time, the artist gained prominence in artistic circles and was generally regarded as the leading Norwegian artist of the period. At the Exposition Universelle of 1889 in Paris, Thaulow made many contacts amongst the leading French artists of the time and when the Salon du Champ de Mars was established in 1890, he was asked to exhibit his work. Thaulow moved permanently to France and was represented by Galeries Georges Petit & Cie in Paris.

    According to Vidar Poulsson, A stream through a village, was probably painted about 1894-1896 during the artist's sojourn in Dieppe. Thaulow painted many river scenes during his stay in that town and Montreuil-sur-Mer, and the present painting is a superb example of the artist's ability to capture complex reflections on slow-moving water.

    We are grateful to Vidar Poulsson for confirming the attribution to Frits Thaulow.
