Elmer Berge (Norwegian/American, 1892-1956). Oil on canvas landscape painting. Signed along the lower right. Berge was a well-known landscape painter in Minnesota, painting with Cameron Booth and Frederic Calhoun.
Sight; height: 24 in x width: 30 in. Framed; height: 29 3/4 in x width: 36 in.


There are no visible tears or losses. There is no sign of restoration under UV light. The colors are bold and bright. There is light cracking to paint throughout the recto, most noticeably to the sky; please see the listing image. There are visible stretcher bar marks along the upper and lower margins. To the left center of the sky, there is a spiral crack, which signals a possibility that the canvas was hit from the verso. The verso could not be examined due to the nature of how the artwork is framed. Light wear to the frame.
