Johan Christian Dahl is credited as the first great romantic painter in Norway, and one of the greatest European landscape artists of all time. He executed View from Vaekero near Christiania while living in Dresen with the German romantic landscape painter Caspar David Friedrich. A kindred spirit who likewise sought the divine in nature, Dahl recounts how they once strolled the park of the Grösser Garten among ‘many lovely trees of different kinds, and the moon looked beautiful behind the dark fir trees.’”

His influence in View from Vaekero near Christiania is palpable. The National Gallery describes it as “one of Dahl’s most Friedrich-like landscapes,” noting that “The painting is infused with a melancholy, nocturnal mood frequently found in the art of Friedrich, and the repertoire of romantic motifs — cloud-covered moon, rocky inlet, misty hills, haunting ship riding at anchor, drying nets, and the couple contemplating the nocturnal scene — can also be found in the great German painter’s works.”
