Impressionist Seascape Oil Painting on Canvas by Nels Hagerup, Framed

Circa 1895

$9,000

About

Untitled [Seascape], an original oil on canvas by Nels Hagerup, is a piece for the true collector. Hagerup is most valued and famous for the sophisticated, subtle, atmospheric California coastal seascape, particularly those portraying a sunset time and waves crashing on rocks. Hagerup's use of varying shades or oranges, greens, browns, and grays immediately captures the viewer, highlighting the artist’s talent at depicting moody seascapes. There is incredible depth and detail captured in this work that allows for a new experience with each viewing. Both the technical talent of Jansson and his choice of subject matter pair perfectly with the custom conservation wood frame. This masterful work is perfect for those who have an affinity for seascapes, coastal scenes, nature, sunsets, nautical art, Impressionism, California plein air painting, and color-rich works.

Artist Info/Bio: ARTIST BIOGRAPHY DOCUMENT IS INCLUDED Documentation: CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY IS INCLUDED About the Artist: Nels (Nielsen) Hagerup, a Norwegian painter, was known for his stunning seascapes, particularly those portraying the California coast at sunset. Hagerup was born in Christiania, Norway in 1864, into a family of artists that included the composer Edward Hagerup Grieg. As a teen, he studied art at the Christiana Art School, the Royal Academy in Berlin, and later under Carl Locher in Copenhagen. After sailing to the West Coast as a merchant seaman in 1882, he settled in Portland, Oregon. There, he was an instructor of drawing at the Bishop Scott Academy (now called Hill Academy), and was a founder of the Portland Art Association. In 1892, he moved to San Francisco with his wife, artist Harriet Marie Hageman Hagerup. It was there that he would remain, initially working as a stevedore to support his family and his art. He later established a home and studio in the Sunset District near Golden Gate Park and Ocean Beach. During his prolific career, Hagerup painted nearly 6,000 oils of sand dunes, ships and marine scenes. One of his more important works is the 16' x 18' mural in the Assembly Room of the San Francisco Merchants' Exchange Building. His work was exhibited at the Lewis & Clark Expo in Portland (gold metal), the Alaska-Yukon Expo in Seattle (gold medal), and the California Historical Society (retrospective). Nels Hagerup passed away in 1922. His legacy lies among other distinguished Norwegian-born California artists, such as Carl Henrick Jonnevold, Chris Jorgensen, and Paul Lauritz.
