JC Dahl’s Rjukanfoss Landscape Stolen

The work “Rjukanfoss” landscape from 1830 by JC Dahl was stolen from the formal affairs mansion of Norsk Hydro this past weekend.

The mansion is located at Vaekeroe, west of downtown Oslo. It is currently under renovation. The thieves used the scaled scaffolding set up outside it, even though it is monitored by video surveillance. Two persons were caught by the video while they entered through the attic door. The alarm did sound and the thieves quickly took the Dahl painting and another les valuable one and escaped through the scaffolding on the opposite side of the mansion.

Peder Andreas Lund, in charge of Hydro’s art collection, said the Dahl painting is valued at around NOK 4 million and is insured, “but its value is hypothetical because the painting never would have been put up for sale.”
