Biography  
Nicolai Martin Ulfsten


Nicolai Ulfsten (...) is especially known as Jærens and Listas painters, and his beautiful landscapes are characterized by large surfaces, long lines and a delicate colorite that emphasize the gray tones. Less well known, his images are motives from a trip to Egypt, exploring the desert landscape and the light in North Africa. In 1879, Ulfsten undertook a trip to Egypt, and the impressions therefrom resulted in a series of images exploring the distinctive landscape and light effects of the Cairo area. Orientalism was a very popular art direction among artists and audiences in Europe, and Ulfsten was one of a few Norwegian artists in the 19th century who traveled to the Middle East and worked on motivations from there.
