Herman Österlund was a renowned Swedish artist recognized for his stunning portrayals of the west coast of Sweden. In 1896, he relocated to Stockholm and successfully passed the entrance examination for the Royal Academy. During this period, he shared a studio with Otto Hesselbom, forging a strong friendship.
After completing three years of studies, Österlund decided to return to the west coast. He initially settled in Löberöd, Skåne, where he resided until 1905. However, he embarked on numerous trips abroad, including visits to Italy, Paris, and Spain, often accompanied by fellow artist Karl Isakson.
In 1909, Österlund moved to Malmö, and in 1913, he began renting a summer studio in Kämpinge, eventually relocating to Arild. It is likely that our painting, "Beach Curve in the Evening Light," depicts either the beach area at Falsterbo or Arild. In this artwork, we witness Österlund's exceptional talent for capturing the enchanting evening light. The painting emanates a serene atmosphere and showcases a simplicity that avoids excessive details. The interplay of light and the curvature of the beach creates a captivating three-dimensional effect, resulting in a truly remarkable masterpiece.
