Essay: "A Glimpse of Morning Light, Dalarö" by Robert Thegerström (1857-1919) captures a serene forest with green vegetation. The painting showcases a few tree trunks, and a gentle ray of sunlight breaks through the foliage in the far-left corner. The technique used to depict the trees with long brushstrokes is reminiscent of Edvard Munch's style.
Robert Thegerström, a prominent artist from the late 19th to early 20th century, was known for his naturalistic landscape paintings.
