During 1746–48 the Danish artist Johannes Rach painted eight Norwegian locations by royal commission. These are some of the earliest known paintings depicting Norwegian locations. Views, they show cities, castles, fortifications and remarkable sights. They also convey important information on landscape and gardens. Rach’s works are primarily valuable as cultural documents, but also have definite pictorial charm.
