Alfred Wahlberg was a Swedish landscape painter active in Germany, France and Sweden. In his early career, he lived in Dusseldorf and took some impressions from his teacher, the Norwegian painter Hans Frederik Gude. Wahlberg moved to Paris in 1861 and came in contact with the french impressionism movement, and that was the time when Wahlberg transitioned from the Düsseldorf technique to the more modern french way of painting. Wahlberg's had some success and won medals at the Paris Saloon in 1870 and 1872 and a first-class award at the 1878 World's Fair in Paris. One of his most famous paintings is "Fiskläge vid bohuslänska kusten, 1869" who later sold to Swedish King Charles XV. Our painting is also from the west coast of Sweden, likely from Fiskebäckskil or Fjällbacka. It's painted with spontaneous brush strokes with bright colours; here we also see Wahlberg's impressive talent in capturing a summer day with a rocky coast with a cloudy sky and the water with many colours and a wind mill. A great piece by Alfred Wahlberg.
