Wonderful miniature, wonderful New York City view. Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, Berthelsen's family came to the United States in 1889. He studied and taught music in Chicago, and was encouraged to paint by artists Svend Svenson and Wayman Adams. Berthelsen moved to New York City in 1920. He is best-known and treasured for his scenes of the city in snow.
Johann Berthelsen (1883 - 1967)
