About the Event
We will look at the extraordinary outburst of artistic energy in Denmark between 1790 and 1910. The Danish art scene suddenly became a rival to that of Paris and London. Together, we will reflect on the compelling paintings of Eckersberg, Kobke and P.S. Kroyer. Excitingly in the decades around 1900, an art colony flourished in Skagen (the northern most point of Denmark). We will enjoy the many different Scandinavian artists who came together in the magical place of Skagen and the paintings Michael and Ann Ancher (Skagen natives).
