A Woodland Stream, Peder Mørk Mønsted
Link is to Wikimedia Commons, which has a high res version of the file. The original was sold through Sotheby’s in 1987 and is presumably still in a private collection.
As far as I can tell, the majority of Mønsted’s paintings seem to be in private collections. He is one of my favorite painters, based solely on seeing images of his work; I’ve never seen an original in person.
If anyone is aware of Peder Mønsted paintings in public collections here in the U.S. (particularly on the mid-Atlantic states), I would love to know about them.

I love Peder Mork Monsted, too. I think I first learned of him through James Gurney’s blog. I’ve had Stream with a Deer (lifted from Wikipedia) as desktop background for most of the past year. I did some digging awhile back to find a place to see his work, and the only thing I came up with was Dahesh Museum in New York. I’ve never been there, but it looks like they have two Monsteds. Here’s a link to the ‘M’ page of of their collection. Monsted is a few down the list.
Unfortunately I’m on the west coast, so I’m not likely to get there anytime soon. I’d like to hear if you ever get a chance to go.
They are wonderful in real life as well. Have come close to buying some on auction but they always go for a bit more than my budget. :)
You often find them for sale here: https://bruun-rasmussen.dk
There are several up for auction at the moment.
Asher Brown Durand was also a woodland interior painter
