In 1644, the young Alkmaar artist Allart van Everdingen traveled through Norway. It was an inspiring experience which determined his career. He subsequently produced numerous paintings, drawings and etchings of rugged landscapes with waterfalls, log cabins and fir trees. At first glance, these realistic snapshots of Norwegian nature turn out to be artistic constructions, conceived and executed in the workshop. In doing so, Van Everdingen created a new genre in Dutch art, which was eagerly accepted and imitated.
