Thomas Fearnley

1802-1842-Norway-Romanticism

 

Brief Biography-Thomas Fearnley of Fredrikshald, Norway was born into a wealthy family. He studied in Oslo, Copenhagen and Stockholm. The Swedish nobility and the Crown Prince Oscar of Denmark commissioned much work from him before travelling to Europe. Johan Christian Dahl tutored him in Dresden, and he toured many countries, including England, the home of his ancestors. In Italy, he painted in several locations from Venice to Sicily. In Norway, Fearnley went on study tours of fjords with Andreas Achenbach. He died of typhoid in Munich in 1842, and his remains returned to Oslo in 1922. The National Gallery in Oslo houses many of his paintings.
