Johannes Flintoe. self-portrait

Johannes Flintoe (1787–1870) was a Danish-Norwegian painter, known for his depiction of Norwegian landscapes and scenes from Scandinavian history.



Flintoe arrived in Norway in 1811 and taught at the School of Drawing (Norwegian Tegneskolen) in Christiania from 1819 to 1851. His classes were attended by Hans Gude, Johan Fredrik Eckersberg and Hans Hansen among others.[1].

Flintoe is remembered for influencing the development of landscape painting in 19th century Norway at a time when interest in national romanticism was blossoming. He traveled widely in Norway himself, painting numerous landscapes and national costumes, all considered to be of high cultural importance.[2]
