Skagen painters

DEFINITION

Scandinavian artists who painted "en plein aire" between 1870 and 1900 in Skagen, Jutland, the northernmost part of Denmark, they were attracted to the beautiful scenery and quality of light. Influenced by modernist movements in Paris, Colony members broke traditions of the Royal Danish Academy. Members included Laurits Tuxen, Karl Madsen, Viggo Johansen and Carl Locher. Because the artists made the location so popular, the colony folded because members could not find enough places to stay to gather at the same time and live in proximity to each other.
