Peder Severin Krøyer

Danish painter

1851 - 1909

Peder Severin Kroyer was born in 1851 in Stavanger, Norway. Krøyer's art education begun at the age of nine under private tutelage. In 1865, Peder Severin enrolled in the Royal Danish Academy of Art (Det Kongelige Danske Kunstakademi) and graduated from this academy 1870. In 1873 he was awarded the gold medal, as well as a scholarship.

In 1874 Heinrich Hirschsprung bought his first painting from Krøyer, establishing a long-standing patronage. Hirschsprung's collection of art forms the basis of the Hirschsprung Museum in Copenhagen.

Between 1877 and 1881, Krøyer travelled extensively in Europe, meeting artists, studying art, and developing his skills and outlook. He stayed in Paris and studied under Léon Bonnat, and undoubtedly came under the influence of contemporary impressionists – Claude Monet, Alfred Sisley, Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Édouard Manet.

In 1882 he returned to Denmark, painting themes from local life, as well as depictions of the artistic community there.
