The Willumsen collection  at Odden has opened its 28th season

and we are proud to present a new gift to the collection, a watercolour from 1903, painted during rainy weather at  Sceaux Robinson, a well-known Parisian summer resort place with open air restaurants. A boy’s face pops up unexpectedly in the corner of the image, perhaps he was watching or disturbing the painter at work.  Many years ago a Norwegian painter acquired  the picture from Michelle Bourret, Willumsen’s companion during the last 30 years of his life. It was sold on auction 2016.
