Paris 1896.

Harald Oskar Sohlberg (29 September 1869 – 19 June 1935) was a Norwegian Neo-romantic painter, particularly known for his depictions of the mountains of Rondane and the town of Røros. His perhaps most well-recognized painting is his Winter's Night in Rondane (1913–14). His painting "Fisherman's Cottage" was used as the cover of a book by John Burnside called A summer of Drowning; one of the sections of this book is called "Fisherman's Cottage".
