Bornholm Landscape © Steen Espersen, 1989


The third instalment in my Espersen miniseries is a landscape. Steen was of an old Bornholm family and found a large part of his inspiration in the rocky landscapes. All thing nautical spoke to him and he spent a long time on the easternmost island group in Denmark, painting. Unfortunately, none of his oil paintings are available – not as far as I know – but I’m including a Sketch from Cristiansø.

    Love this work, Hanne. A section of my first book is set on Bornholm and I feel that I know its rocky landscape so well. Thank you for sharing another of Steen Espersen’s works. 😀

      It is an unusual island — one of the beauty spots in Denmark. I feel that Steen captured the essence of the landscape, and the light, in his paintings. I remember the section in Shadow of the Raven. . .
      you know how I enjoyed the book.
