Johan Christian Dahl. Technical Art Examination.

Last year I did the multispectral imaging documentation of 52 J.C Dahl paintings at the KODE museum in Bergen, Norway. Dahl was a romantic Norwegian painter, recognized as the father of Norwegian landscape painting.

Multispectral imaging documentation of 52 J. C. Dahl’s paintings for the KODE museum in Bergen, Norway.

As usual, I post here my research on published technical art examination material on this artist, which is actually really sparse.

[1] L.E. Plahter, U Plahter  “J. C. Dahls malerier – en teknisk undersokelse” J.C. Dahl’s paintings – a technical study “Johan Christian Dahl 1788-1857. Jubileumsutstilling Oslo: Nasjonalgalleriet (1988) 59-77. The only source of technical information on Dahl, and, unfortunately, just in Norwegian.

[2] J. Leighton, A. Reeve, A. Burnstock “A ‘Winter Landscape’ by Caspar David Friedrich” National Gallery Technical Bulletin Volume 13, 1989. This paper incidentally provides information also on Dahl since he worked with Friedrich after 1818 when he was in Germany.

The documentation I produced in 2011 has not been published yet but the museum granted me the permission to use some images of J.C. Dahl paintings for an educational presentation regarding multispectral imaging.
