About the artist
Afterward, he stayed in Paris under the guidance of Léon Bonnat and was inspired by the Impressionists. Traveling was a major part of his life, influencing his artwork. In 1882, he returned to Denmark and started painting life at Skagen, a secluded fishing village. He and his wife, Marie Krøyer, made Skagen their permanent residence from 1891, and his celebrated artwork, 'Summer Evening in Skagen Sønderstrand' in 1893, comes from this period.
Despite his declining eyesight towards the end of his life, his optimism shone through as he continued painting, creating some of his most remarkable work while partially blind.
