Artist: Alfred Bergström
Title: Winter Scene from the Stockholm Waterfront
Object type: Painting
Description: Sleigh-loads of snow are being tipped over the Blasieholmen quayside. In the background looms southern Stockholm. Alfred Bergström captures the effects of light on the snowy urban scene. In the foreground, the colours of the drifts range from dazzling high-lights to violet blue shadows. His attention to reflected light suggests an influence from impressionism gained during the artist’s travels abroad in the mid-1890s.
