Painted by Annanias Midthus Tveit (1847-1924), who is considered to be the foremost representative of the pure Os style. He was an apprentice to his father, Nils Midthus. He mostly painted for farmers in the area. When he was 25 years old, he purchased a neighboring farm, Tveit, and established his workshop there and ran a rose painting school.
