Peder Severin Krøyer’s canvases were bursting with light and color, and today, reproductions of his work can brighten up your own home. As one of the foremost Danish painters of the 19th century, Krøyer’s work is recognized for its unique style and themes. Krøyer was born in Norway in 1851, and later studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Art with Frederik Vermehren. His travels led him to, among many other places, France, where he was influenced by the master Impressionists of the time, including Monet, Degas, Renoir and Manet.
Krøyer eventually settled in Skagen, Denmark. The small fishing village on the sea became an influential artistic hub. Krøyer acted as the unofficial leader of the Skagen Painters group, and his most famous works emerged from this period, many of which depict simple scenes from everyday life in Skagen. Famous works such as “Midsummer Eve Bonfire on Skagen Beach” demonstrate just how gifted Krøyer was when it came to the bold use of light and color to bring significance and emotion to typical moments in everyday life. By blending Realism and Impressionism effortlessly, Krøyer developed some of the most timeless works of the late 19th century.
