Biography Niels Christian Hansen
Niels Christian Hansen studied at the Royal Danish Academy for Arts in 1851 and
started working as a portrait painter in 1855/56. During this time,
photography began to rise and Hansen, instead of fighting the new
medium, adapted to it.
He joined a partnership with a photographer
and soon their company Hansen, Schou & Weller became the most famous
photo studio in Copenhagen. They took pictures of all the important
people of their time and many of their photographs can today be found in
the most exclusive portrait collections worldwide.
