Christen Købke

1810-1848 Denmark/Romanticism

 

Brief Biography-Christen Schiellerup Købke was born in Copenhagen in 1810. He studied at the Royal Danish Academy under Christian August Lorentzen and Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg. He lived at Sortedam Lake in 1834, painting the neighbouring scenery, and he married in 1837. A year later, he travelled to Italy, visiting several cities. Købke never gained admittance to the Danish Academy, and during his lifetime, his work was not well received. Today he is regarded as one of the foremost painters of the Danish Golden Age.
