Biography Christen Kobke
Little known beyond his native Denmark, Christen Kobke lived a short life of 37 years, but became very well respected in his own country as a painter who captured "the quintessence of Danish life during its most momentous and fertile period, which produced such cultural luminaries as Hans Christian Andersen and Soren Kierkegaard." It was a time in the 1830s known as the Golden Age of Denmark, when a variety of cultural, scientific, and artistic accomplishments followed and offset a series of military and financial losses for the country. "As Denmark's regeneration got under way, artists turned their sights to the people, traditions and customs of their native land, bolstered by a renewed sense of national pride. . ."
