Have a wonderful easter weekend!
Peder Severin Kroyer ~ Summer Evening at Skagen,
(The Artist’s Wife with a Dog on the Beach),
oil on canvas.
Peder Severin Kroyer was a Norwegian-Danish painter.
He is one of the best known and beloved, and undeniably
the most colorful of the Skagen Painters, a community
of Danish and Nordic artists who lived or worked
in Skagen, Denmark. Kroyer was the unofficial leader
of the group. Kroyer painted many beach scenes
featuring both recreation life on the beach
(bathers, strollers), and local fishermen.
The model for Summer Evening at Skagen
was Marie Kroyer, the beautiful wife of the painter.
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune--without the words,
And never stops at all,
And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.
I've heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.

by Jacques-Louis David (French 1748-1825)
~ Coronation of Napoleon and Josephine (detail)
David was a highly influential French painter in the
Neoclassical style, considered to be the preeminent
painter of the era. In the 1780s his cerebral brand
of history painting marked a change in taste away
from Rococo frivolity toward a classical austerity
and severity, heightened feeling chiming with the moral
climate of the final years of the ancien régime.
