Ejnar R. Kragh
Spring Landscape

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


Signed lower left, "Ejnar R. Kragh" and painted circa 1945.

A substantial and period oil landscape showing a fruit-tree in blossom in the foreground and verdant fields receding towards rolling hills beneath sunlit turquoise and lavender clouds.

After training as a silversmith, Kragh turned to painting in the mid 1920's. Trips to France fueled his passion for both the art of landscape and his love of the Post-Impressionists. His abiding inspiration, however, came from the Danish towns and beaches that he loved, particularly the small fishing village of Gudhjem, which he made his summer home. He depicted the warmth and optimism of these places with a gently expressionistic use of light and color, a delicacy of style exemplified in this elegant and luminous landscape. Ejnar Kragh exhibited widely and with success, both in Denmark and throughout Europe including in Paris (1925) and at Copenhagen's Charlottenberg Palace (1939).
