48. Johannessen Johannes(1859 - 1929) - Esefjella

Johannessen was born in Bergen, but after he built a house in Balestrand, this is where he stayed most of the time. His house is perhaps the most beautiful of all in Balestrand. As far as we know, Johannessen had no formal training as a painter. Many of his paintings are now hanging in various houses in Balestrand, and they are highly valued. He visited quite often with Adelsten Normann and Hans Dahl, and contributed to the rich artistic environment in Balestrand in the beginning of this century. He died in Balestrand 67 years old and was buried  by the Tjugum Church.
