KROHG, Christian
(b. 1852, Aker, d. 1925, Oslo)

Look ahead. The Harbour at Bergen

Oil on canvas, 63 x 86 cm
Nasjonalgalleriet, Oslo

This picture was inspired by a painting of similar subject by Caillebotte. In Krohg's version the rower is turning briefly to check his course and avoid a collision with other boats, not least the steamer in the background. The sunlight enables the artist to paint the reflections in the water.
