Christen Købke : Danish Master of Light (PB)

Christen Købke : Danish Master of Light (PB)


Christen Købke (1810-1848) was arguably the greatest painter of Denmark’s ‘Golden Age’, the period of the nation’s supreme artistic achievement. He had the remarkable ability to invest the simplest corner of town or countryside with charm and delicacy, and endowed ordinary people and places, and simple motifs, with a universal significance; a world in microcosm.

This beautiful designed and accessibly written book discusses Købke’s achievement and also highlights the most innovative aspects of his work, including his fascination with light and atmosphere, his exquisite originality and his experimental outlook.

Christen Købke: Danish Master of Light accompanied the Christen Købke: Danish Master of Light exhibition at the National Gallery, London (17 March - 13 June 2010) and the National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh (5 July - 3 October 2010).
