Executed in 1909.
From his studio, Theodor Kittelsen looked straight across at the hills on the other side of the lake, Baaneberget, Norefjell and Eggedalsfjella. 'Many images and thoughts have wandered out from the small studio with the wooden beam ceiling', wrote Theodor Kittelsen. 'Lauvlia is beautifully situated - during the summer, there is a riot of colour here. Over the treetops one catches a glimpse of the calm blue lake, and the land on the other side, Baaneberget, shines. Further afar, on the horizon is Norefjeld and the blue Eggedals mountains with some shining white patches of snow. The white birch tree trunks shine and the soft leaves glitter from the sun.' (Theodor Kittelsen, quoted in Lauvlia exh. cat., pp. 16-19).
