Carl Vilhelm Holsøe | 121 artworks | Part.¹

Il pittore Carl Vilhelm Holsoe (1863-1935), un membro di spicco della scuola di pittura Danese nella seconda metà del XIX e all'inizio del XX secolo, era molto apprezzato da colleghi e collezionisti.
Carl Vilhelm Holsøe è nato nella Danimarca occidentale e si è trasferito a Copenaghen nel 1882 per studiare alla Kongelige Danke Kunstakademi.
Nel 1884 frequentò le lezioni alla Kunstnernes Studieskole sotto la guida di Peder Severin Kroyer. Lì avrebbe stretto amicizia per tutta la vita con due personalità, Peter Ilsted e Wilhelm Hammershoi, che avrebbero influenzato la direzione della sua intera carriera. Ognuno ha preso come soggetto principale scene di interni basate sulle proprie famiglie, creando un genere dedicato alla "tranquillità domestica".

Peder Severin Krøyer | Midsummer Eve bonfire on Skagen's beach, 1906

The painting includes many of the Skagen Painters: Krøyer's daughter Vibeke, mayor Otto Schwartz and his wife Alba Schwartz, Michael Ancher, Degn Brøndum, Anna Ancher, Holger Drachmann and his 3rd wife Soffi, the Swedish composer Hugo Alfvén and Marie Krøyer.


This picture was Krøyer’s last large figure painting.
Peder Severin Krøyer (1851-1909)** gathers all the representatives of the artist colony, members of the town’s bourgeoisie, as well as some of the residents of Skagen, in a large circle around the Midsummer eve bonfire on Skagen Sønderstrand.
The painting is a tribute to the artist colony in Skagen, but it is the first time Krøyer depicts the local population together with the artists.
There are still clear differences between the two groups, because the artists and the bourgeoisie are placed on the lighter, left side of the picture, while most of the residents are placed on the darker, right side.

Peder Severin Krøyer | Pittore di Skagen

Peder Severin Krøyer (1851-1909) è stato un pittore impressionista Norvegese naturalizzato Danese, uno dei più amati artisti della confraternita dei Pittori di Skagen, i quali rappresentano un movimento artistico, osservato verso la fine del XIX secolo nel comune danese di Skagen.
I principali esponenti furono Michael ed Anna Ancher, e soprattutto Peter Severin Krøyer.
Non lontani dall'impressionismo, formavano un circolo e raccolsero molte delle opere in un'esposizione permanente da loro ideata, lo Skagens Museum.
Tra il 1877-1881, Krøjer fece molti viaggi di studio e di lavoro, incontrando varie correnti pittoriche e conoscendo molti artisti tra cui gli impressionisti Claude Monet, Alfred Sisley, Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir e il loro anticipatore Edouard Manet.

Camille Pissarro | The Avenue, Sydenham, 1871

  • Everything is beautiful, all that matters is to be able to interpret.
  • All the sorrow, all the bitterness, all the sadness, I forget them and ignore them in the joy of working.
  • Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.
  • The whole world is beautiful, the art is in the seeing.
  • Paint the essential character of things.

Emil Nolde (1867-1956) | Flowers

German-Danish painter and printmaker Emil Nolde was one of the first Expressionists, a member of Die Brücke (The Bridge) of Dresden in 1906, and was one of the first oil painting and watercolor painters of the early 20th century to explore color.
On an ethnological expedition to the East Indies 1913-14, he was impressed by the power of the art he saw there. Back in Europe, he produced brooding landscapes and colourful flowers.
As a printmaker he was noted especially for the stark black-and-white effect of his crudely incised woodcuts.
He is known for his brushwork and expressive choice of colors. Golden yellows and deep reds appear frequently in his work, giving a luminous quality to otherwise somber tones. His watercolors include vivid, brooding storm-scapes and brilliant florals.

Carl Heinrich Bloch 1834 - 1890 | Danish painter

Carl Heinrich Bloch 1834 - 1890 was a Danish painter. He was born in Copenhagen and studied with Wilhelm Marstrand at the Royal Danish Academy of Art (Det Kongelige Danske Kunstakademi) there. His early work featured rural scenes from everyday life. From 1859 to 1866, Bloch lived in Italy, and this period was important for the development of his historical style. His first great success was the exhibition of his Prometheus Unbound in Copenhagen in 1865. After the death of Marstrand, he finished the decoration of the ceremonial hall at the University of Copenhagen. He was then commissioned to produce 23 paintings for the Frederiksborg Palace Chapel. These were all scenes from the life of Christ which have become very popular as illustrations. The originals, painted between 1865 and 1879, are still at Frederiksborg Palace.
