Christoffer W. Eckersberg - Large Format Fine Art Prints and Reproductions

Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg (1783-1853) was a Danish painter. He laid the foundation for the period of art known as the Golden Age of Danish Painting, and is referred to as the Father of Danish painting.

Eckersberg was the most successful and influential painter in Denmark in the first half of the 19th century. As a teacher he formed the sensibilities of an entire generation of landscape painters, including his best known pupil Christen Købke.

Eckersberg trained at the Copenhagen Academy and in Paris under Jacques-Louis David. After a three-year stay in Rome (1813-16) he returned to Copenhagen to become a professor at the Academy, a post he held until his death. During his long career he painted numerous portraits, landscapes and marine subjects, as well as a range of historical and mythological subjects.
