Peder Severin Krøyer (1851-1909)

Sommeraften på Skagen Sønderstrand (Summer Evening on the Souther Beach), 1893

Krøyer was a Danish Impressionist and a vital member of the Skagen Painters, a communitity of Scandinavian artists located in Denmark from the 1870s to the turn of the century.

Summer Evening on Skagen’s Southern Beach is perhaps Krøyer’s most famous painting, but he was a prolific artist. More of his work will certainly be featured in the coming weeks.
