Michael Ancher

This month’s featured artist is Michael Ancher. A Danish realist artist known for his depictions of fishermen. He was also a member of the Skagen Painters. 

His wife, Anna Ancher was also a remarkable artist. I analyzed her painting Interior. Brøndum’s Annex at the start of 2022. 

Here’s a gallery of his work:

  1. Stunning use of color and light. Each painting has unique qualities that draw the eye into the scene and makes one feel like you are standing next to the subjects and observing in real time. One of my favorites is the painting of the ladies walking on the beach. Such lovely and delicate use of color.
