The midnight sun

midnightsun E.Ulving
"I've thought and thought, these last few days, about the endless day of the Nordland summer."
The opening lines of Pan (1894), the novel by Knut Hamsun, is consonant with the ambience
in this painting by Hamsun's contemporary, the Norwegian painter Even Ulving.
