Impressionism   •   Peder Severin Krøyer @ Wikipedia

Peder Severin Krøyer was born on July 23, 1851 in Stavanger, Norway. He was raised by his aunt and uncle because his mother was deemed unable to take care of him.

He began his art education at the age of nine and was enrolled at the Copenhagen Technical Institute. At the age of 19, Krøyer graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Arts. In 1873 he received the gold medal and a scholarship.

Between 1877 and 1881 he toured Europe, met artists, studied art and developed his skills and perspectives. In the summer of 1882 Krøyer came to Skagen for the first time. From now on he came there every summer. He was particularly impressed by nature and society with other artists. He joined the Skagen community there.

On July 23, 1889, he married Marie Krøyer, who was also a painter. The couple got a daughter named Vibeke in January 1895. They were divorced in 1905 after a long separation.

Krøyer's vision left him in the last years of his life, until he was completely blind. He was nevertheless always optimistic and painted it despite health barriers almost to the end. Krøyer became mentally ill in 1900 and had to be treated several times in a mental hospital. He probably suffered from a manic-depressive psychosis. Krøyer died in 1909 in Skagen at the age of 58 years. His grave is on the Skagen cemetery. © Meisterdrucke
