A World Apart: Anna Ancher and the Skagen Art Colony
On view February 15–May 12, 2013
The first exhibition in the United States to focus on Danish modern painter Anna Ancher (1859–1935) and the artist colony at Skagen, Denmark, A World Apart: Anna Ancher and the Skagen Art Colony features 41 paintings and oil sketches by Ancher and more than 20 by her fellow Skagen artists. The close-knit community of artists in Skagen, Ancher’s native town in northern Denmark’s remote Jutland peninsula, included Anna Ancher’s husband, Michael Ancher, and renowned artists P. S. Krøyer and Laurits Tuxen, among others.
A World Apart is the result of an unprecedented partnership between NMWA and Denmark’s Skagens Museum, in collaboration with Michael and Anna Ancher’s House in Skagen and with assistance from the Embassy of Denmark, Washington, D.C.
