Another view of Roskilde Fjord by Holmbom, dated two years later in 1896, is today in the collection of the Bornholms Kunstmuseum in Gudhjem, on the Baltic island of Bornholm in Denmark.
Very little is known of the Danish landscape artist Gustav Holmbom (or Holmboe), who painted mainly landscapes in and around Copenhagen and elsewhere in Denmark. Among his subjects were views at Amager Island in the Øresund, the sound between Denmark and Sweden, as well as landcsapes at Lyngby lake and the forest park of Dyrehaven, north of Copenhagen and along the Suså river, southwest of the city, as well as at Vejle Fjord on the Jutland peninsula.
