      About this Skagen tour

      There's a reason why artists flocked to Skagen (pronounced "skain") in the mid-19th century. The endless sandy beaches, and the fishermen who found their bounty here since the Middle Ages, were the perfect subjects for a group of impressionists known as the Skagen Painters. One of these artists, Michael Anchers, brought attention to Skagen with his painting "Will He Round the Point?" when King Christian IX purchased it in 1885. Anchers' wife Anna, the only member of the artists' colony who was actually born in Skagen, was a prolific painter herself, and their home became a center of creativity.

      The dining room at the Brondums Hotel was another popular gathering spot for this close-knit artistic community. Artists like P.S. Kroyer, Viggo Johansen, Laurits Tuxen, and Christian Krohg were known for their en plein air approach, an evolution of neoclassical and impressionist styles. All were inspired by the "special light" of Skagen, a combination of its location in the far north and the effects of sand in the air. As you'll see, that special light still mesmerizes.  

      He died of a broken art

      P.S. Kroyer, unofficial leader of the Skagen Painters, fell in love with fellow painter Marie Triepcke, and quickly married her. But Kroyer wasn't an easy man to live with, and Marie began an affair with Swedish composer Hugo Alfven, became pregnant, and later married him. Kroyer died in Skagen four years later of "mental illness," leaving behind several famous paintings featuring Marie.
