The painting is in good condition, consistent with age. Within the red tree on the right is a short, slight scratch visible. There is some slight rubbing on the edges of the panel and the corners are slightly bumped and with pinholes. The frame shows small signs of age and wear.
Rudolph Thygesen (1880-1953)
Thygesen first studied in Oslo with the Norwegian female artist Harriet Backer, Then he attended for a short period the Anton Ažbe School in Munich and studied then in Paris at the Académie Colarossi. 1919-1920 he was again in Paris and studied with André Lhothe. Inspired by the numerous movements in modern art, Thygesen changed his style from impressionist landscapes to harmonic and more decorative compositions. Thus he executed several frescoes and wall decorations.
