PEDER SEVERIN KRØYER
A Painter of Northern Lights
by Kathy McLauchlan.
Peder Severin Krøyer, the Danish artist expressed his particular love for that time - "when the sun is going down, when the moon is rising over the sea, hanging there, crystal-clear, and the water, smooth as glass, reflects its light ..." the 'blue hour' of northern Scandinavian summer nights, when sea and sky appear to merge into a single luminous whole. This lecture explores Krøyer's life and work in Skagen and evaluates the paintings that made him one of Europe's most celebrated artists by the end of the 19th century.
