Theude Gronland was a painter of still life subjects, genre, flowers and fruits. He was born on August 31st 1817 in Altona. An inveterate traveller from an early age, he was a student at the academy in Copenhagen, on completion of his education he travelled to England and Italy before settling in Paris, where he spent the next twenty-five years. In 1868 he moved to Berlin, living and working there for a number of years where his work proved extremely popular. He produced works of immense warmth, using a palette of rustic, yet vibrant colours depicting his subject matter with detail and great skill. He went on to exhibit his works in Copenhagen, the Paris Salon, Berlin and at the Royal Academy in London where he showed a total of seven paintings between 1849-1852. Titles included 'fruit and Flowers', 'Still Life' and 'Flowers'. From addresses in both France and London, He was awarded a first class medal at the salon in 1848 and a second-class medal at the Exposition Unverselle in 1855. Although his most respected and coveted paintings are still life subjects, he was also an accomplished portraitist and painter of Genre, employing the same softness of touch and detail of these works, of which ' Interieur d'une echoppe de cordonnier' is one of his better known. This skilfully constructed panel, of autumn leaves and fruit arranged on a rocky ledge, featuring a Blue Tit perched on a branch peering at a ripened peach, is typical of the style that made Gronland's name Employing clever use of light and shade, a palette of warm greens, earth tones and yellow, the artist has bought to life these inanimate objects and given them shape and texture. It is a delightful picture that reminds the viewer of the wonder of natures gifts bestowed upon us . Gronland Literature: Benezit Volume 6, pages 470-471 Royal Academy Exhibitors, volume 2 .
