General | Latest Info

Landscape Painting in Danish Art is a genre with as many faces as landscape itself. Throughout ages, artists have found their motifs in original, pristine landscape, in forest, vast farmlands and not least the Danish coastal landscape-from dramatic depictions of Men's Cliff to views of gentle, sunny beaches. Jens Juel was the first painter who truly depict Danish landscape, partly based on direct studies of nature. In Age of Juel, Landscape Painting was not a question of exact reproduction of a specific landscape, but of creating spiritual and moving renditions of nature. Auctions include several works by Juel, eg Painting Landscape, Peasant's Cottage by Road, in Background Grain Fields, Striking Sun Effect, Painted 1800. It was CW Eckersberg, however, and especially his pupils and successors, such as Christen Kbke, Dankvart Dreyer, PC Skovgaard and JTh. Lundbye, who really bring Danish Landscape Painting forward. This development was partly due to the fact that contemporary authors such as Adam Oehlenschlager and NFS Grundtvig, and their leading role in romanticist thinking and pronouncing the worship of National, had great influence on visual arts. In this period, painters were also influenced by art historian NL Hyen who, as professor at the Royal Academy of Fine Art, encouraged his students to use Danish landscapes as motif. Artists would go forth into nature with their drawing paper and their paint boxes in order to depict an ideal and graceful Danish landscape. The most famous and well-document in this respect is JTh. Lundbye's and PC Skovgaard's summer trip to Vejby in the northern part of Zealand in 1843. On this trip, every single Light Effect was carefully recorded in a sketchbook, and no detail was too insignificant to be submitted to close scrutiny by artist. Auction No. 770 offers truly top-class Landscape by PC Skovgaard entitle Cows Are milk in Grass under Old Beech Trees. The tradition established by Landscape Painters of this Golden Age has since come to serve as starting point for one of the most significant currents in Danish Painting. Internationally, tall sky, wide horizons and light in country where the sea is always close by, have become synonymous with Danish Painting. In this regard, Skagen Painters and Funen Painters are, of course, entirely crucial. We are pleased to be able to present a fine selection of landscapes by these Danish artists at Auction No. 770. Also included in this auction is a wonderful little landscape by Vilhelm Hammershi from the early 1880s-former possession of Helen Schou, sculptor. As our preparations for Auction No. 770 progresses, photos and further information will gradually be added here.
