Nicolai Martin Ulfsten

Biography from Blomqvist

Nicolai Ulfsten is especially known as landscape painter, and his beautiful landscapes are characterized by large surfaces, long lines and a delicate coloring that emphasizes gray tones. 

Less well known are his images of 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.

Biography from Blomqvist
"Nikolai Ulfsten was one of the most acclaimed contemporary landscape painters, but died early.   He is especially known for his beautiful landscapes characterized by large surfaces, long lines and a delicate palette that accentuates grays." Falahat
