1 FRITS THAULOW c1890s ORIGINAL,UNIQUE, MANUSCRIPT AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED [ALS] HANDWRITTEN BY THE NOTED NORWEGIAN POET
London England 1890 Very Good Manuscript 
On offer is a charming, original manuscript letter undated though assuredly circa 1890s handwritten and boldly signed by Norwegian artist, Frits Thaulow. Sent from the Princes Hotel in London to a Mr. Edwin Davies [as mentioned in the body of the letter] Mr. Thaulow confirms his desire to meet and review the gentleman's collection. Collectors and historians of the artist will recognize that autograph and manuscript items in his hand are extraordinarily rare [at this writing we can find nothing else online]. BIO NOTES: Frits Thaulow (20 October 1847 - 5 November 1906) was a Norwegian impressionist painter. Frits Thaulow was a leading Norwegian landscape painter in the naturalistic 1880's and was from around 1889 also a familiar and admired figure in the European art world. Johan Frederik Thaulow was born in Christiania, the son of the wealthy chemist, Harald Thaulow (1815-1881) and Nicoline ("Nina") Louise Munch (1821-1894). Thaulow was educated at the Academy of Art in Copenhagen in 1870-72, and in the following years 1873-75 he was under the tuition of Hans Gude at the Baden School of Art in Karlsruhe from 1873 to 1875. After a stay in Skagen during the autumn of 1879, Thaulow returned to Norway in 1880. He became one of the leading young figures in the Norwegian art scene, together with Christian Krohg and Erik Werenskiold, and helped established the first National Art Exhibit (also known as Høstutstillingen or Autumn Exhibit) in 1882. Many of the most famous Thaulow Norwegian scene are from Åsgårdstrand, which had become an important center for artists and painters dating from the 1880s. He lived much of his life in France. Thaulow moved to France during 1892, which became his home until his death in 1906. Thaulow soon discovered that the painting scenes in Paris did not suit him. His best paintings were from his time in small towns such as Montreuil-sur-Mer (1892-94), Dieppe and surrounding villages from (1894-1898), Quimperle in Brittany in (1901) and Beaulieu-sur-Dordogne in the Corrèze département (1903). Thaulow received a number of honors for his artistic activity, including his appointment as commander of the 2nd Royal Norwegian Order of St. Olav in 1905. He was received the French Legion of Honor, Order of Saints Maurice and Lazarus from Italy and the Order of Nichan Iftikhar from Tunisia. He died in Volendam, in the Netherlands. The National Gallery of Norway feature 37 of his works. Other prominent displays include The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the Busch-Reisinger Museum at Harvard University. Overall VG.
