Norway the Land of the Midnight Sun. Thorolf Holmboe was a Norwegian painter, illustrator and designer.

This urban legend is unfortunately incorrect..

Holmboe is well known for his landscape paintings from northern Norway, he is represented in the National Gallery with several paintings.

The scene is at latitude of 66.5° N
