Adolph Tidemand is considered one of the leading Norwegian painters of the 19th century. Like no other, he was able to capture the harsh life and traditional customs of the Nordic peasants in his paintings. Not only did he inspire the poets of his homeland, including Andreas Munch and Bjørnstärn Bjørnson, but he is still the protagonist of Norwegian romanticism to this day. The second half of the 1840s is often understood as the artistic heyday of Adolph Tidemand. His most famous works such as "Wedding in Hardanger" and "The lonely old man" he created at the height of his success. Tidemands began his career with paintings that held a highly idealizing depiction of the peasants. This gave way in his later works; in favor of a dramatic and realistic account of the living conditions of the simple rural population and their hard everyday life. This can be clearly seen in paintings such as "Battle at a Country Wedding" and "the fanatics" from his late work.

Tidemand was a classical academician. He enjoyed an excellent education as a student of painter Johan Ludvig Lund at the prestigious Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. He then became a student of history painting with Theodor Hildebrandt and Wilhelm Schadow in Dusseldorf. There, Tidemand's dream became a successful history painter. Even with his first historical composition ("Gustav Vasa speaks to the mayor in the church of Mora"), the young painter was able to draw attention to the art scene at that time. The picture showing a part of Swedish history was later acquired by Kunstverein Rheinland and Westfalen.

A scholarship enabled Tidemand to travel to Rome, where he got to know Italian painting, which influenced his painting style. He did not return to Norway, but settled in Germany. He stayed there for the rest of his life. Visits to his homeland were used by the ambitious painter as study trips. In the rural areas of Norway, he encountered a rural environment that had retained much of its authenticity. Here he finally found his life's work: to perpetuate the true Norway in pure and refined pictures. Tidemand's first sketches, studies and paintings on this subject are characterized by an idyllic, slightly elegant expression and fine painterly values. Later he confidently replaced the idyll with an increasingly dramatic tension and a sober view of the farmers' lives. © Meisterdrucke
