85 000 SEK

Per Ekström (1844–1935) was one of the first Swedish plein air painters, and like the Impressionist painters, he completed his paintings directly in front of the subject. He painted outdoors in different weathers. Ekström had a passionate interest in light, air, and atmospheric effects. "He loves sunrises, adores sunsets and is therefore always, in the summer at least, late to the dinner table." In 1876 he arrived in Paris, and he was impressed by the painting of the Barbizon school, especially by the poetic landscapes of Camille Corot. Ekström painted in the French countryside, of course visited Barbizon, after which he spent a longer period on the rocky coast of Normandy. To later stay more frequently in the vicinity of Paris. During that period, a suite of Impressionist paintings of swamps and floods draped in a silvery salt haze was added. At the World Exhibition in 1899, his landscapes attracted attention, and he was awarded a gold medal. When he came back to Öland after his long emigration at the end of the 1880s, he saw, with fresh eyes, the barren plains of his homeland and more musty air tones. Ekström was seen as "the lyricist of a brush".
