Lot Essay

Thaulow moved to France permanently in 1892 and the present work is probably based on studies made during his stay at Petit-Appeville, a small village near Dieppe by the river Scie. Thaulow spent time in Dieppe from 1894 to 1898 and his first opportunity to paint winter landscapes there came in January 1895 when there was a large snowfall in the area.

There are various versions of the present work including one oil painting and at least five pastels. As the buildings in the distance are somewhat different in each work, this should indicate that they are partly to be considered compositions rather than exact depictions of a precise spot. One of the pastels is dated 1895.

We are grateful to Dr. Vidar Poulsson for confirming the authenticity of this work and for providing this catalogue entry.
