Edvard Diriks was born the 9 June, 1855 in Christiania, and at the age of seventeen went to Germany with the intention of devoting himself to architecture. He studied successively in Stuttgart, Karlsruhe, and Berlin, and it was in the latter city, while a pupil at the Bauakademie that, under the influence of his countryman Christian Krohg (see AskART) and the magnetic German, Max Klinger (see AskART), he renounced architecture and found more congenial expression in the field of painting.
He shortly repaired to Weimar where, after a brief period under Theodor Hagen (see AskART), he returned to Christiania in 1879 and has subsequently divided his time between Norway and Paris.
