Originally from Denmark, Nordell immigrated to the United States at a young age. He studied at the Rhode Island School of Design, the School of Painting of the Museum of Fine Arts under Edmund C. Tarbell (1862-1938) in Boston, as well as at the Académie Julian in Paris. Nordell exhibited widely throughout America in New York, Boston, and on the West Coast. Influenced by the popularity of Impressionism in America, as well as his travels throughout Europe while studying in Paris, he returned to Boston having developed his mature style.
The present lot showcases his Impressionist roots as well as his own unique flair.
