Anna Ancher

Statens Museum for Kunst, Copenhagen

NOW CLOSED

Though she spent much of her career at a remote artists’ colony in Denmark, Ancher also travelled widely, studying under Puvis de Chavannes in Paris in the 1880s. This survey argues that both local and international influences informed her radically modern use of colour. Find out more from the Statens Museum for Kunst’s website.
