Michael Ancher - Niels og Ane Gaihede uden for deres hus i Østerby - 1890

description

Summary

In 1887 Ancher had painted Niels Gaihede at the same spot, but showing more of the surroundings and not trying to portray Gaihede. That painting is at Skagens Museum. See Elisabeth Fabritius, “Michael Ancher og det moderne gennembrud, 1880–1890”, 1999, page 208.

Michael Ancher (1849–1927) came to Skagen in 1874 at the age of 25, and he was the only one of the visiting artists who settled permanently in the town. He grew up on the island of Bornholm, and at the age of 16, he began his apprenticeship as a clerk at the Kalø Manor in Djursland. Here, he began to draw and paint in his spare time, and in 1871 he was accepted as a student at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen.
