Landscape 1869

Erik Bodom was a Norwegian landscape painter. Bodom was born in Vestby, and was educated in Christiania (modern-day Oslo), but concerned himself more with drawing than his studies. When Hans Gude returned from Germany in 1848, Bodom joined his studio, and traveled with him in 1850 to Düsseldorf. Bodom’s first large work, Aus dem Bondhusthal, went to the Bridgewater Gallery in London.

Bodom’s favored subjects were the desert, lonely forest areas, and mountain tarns. His work was characterized by a melancholic and romantic tendency. He died in Düsseldorf.
