Northern Light – The Skagen painters
Art historian Lise Svanholm tells of the flourishing artists’ colony that arose in Skagen around 1900. This is a colourful account of the closely interwoven lives and works of the famous group of Scandinavian artists. Including extracts from the painters’ correspondence with each other, Lise Svanholm tells of the collaboration, love, friendship and conflicts that emerged among artists such as Marie and Peder Severin Krøyer and Anna and Michael Ancher. The book is furnished with more than 200 illustrations, many of which are of painting here reproduced for the first time.
