Lovely exhibition at Dulwich Picture Gallery of Nikolai Astrup(1880-1928)’s prints and paintings. Ubiquitous in Norway, unknown beyond. Fantastic images of Nordic night summer light, dripping fir forests, anthropomorphic landscapes and domestic bliss. He grew up in a damp vicarage, a place that killed several of his siblings; survived by hustling his friends to buy his pictures; after early travels in Europe, returned to settle down with his teenage wife, raise eight children and paint the place where he grew up. Saw God in the detail. Died at 48 of TB.
