Oskar Bergman's work has been increasingly sought after by art collectors in recent years, and museums worldwide have acquired his exquisite pieces. His most recent exhibition was at the Thielska Galleriet in Stockholm. Among his most unusual works are the golden birches painted with gold paint, which are extremely rare. Only a few have appeared at auction in recent years, one at Stockholms Auktionsverk and the other at Uppsala Auktionskammare, both of which sold for high prices after extended bidding. Our watercolor was created in 1908, a fascinating period in the artist's production.
