Frits Thaulow

Johan Frederik Thaulow (Frits Thaulow)

Like a few other significant Skagen painters, Frits Thaulow was born in Norway. Thaulow himself was not quite as taken by the life in Skagen – he lived most of his life in Norway and France – but his preferred motifs was about fishermen and life at sea.

Thaulow married the Danish woman Ingeborg Gad. The marriage didn’t last, so when they got divorced in 1886, Thaulow didn’t return to Denmark.

Frits Thaulow lived the final part of his life in France and died in the Netherlands in 1906.
