Peder Severin Kroyer: Painting "Summer evening at Skagen - The Walk" (1893), Dimension 2

In the composition of his work, the painter manages to direct the sight of the viewer, planning optical axes and lines of sight, thereby emphasizing pictorial elements and details. At an early stage, the artist used mathematical methods - he calculated the perspective or the harmony that the "golden mean" creates.
The reproduction on two levels presented here impressively directs the viewer's gaze to the central message of the picture. This modern way of rendering on acrylic glass allows for high color brilliance and at the same time unfolds a hitherto unknown presence in the room. Classics of art history become current space objects.

Peder Severin Kroyer (1851-1909) knows each child in Denmark and Norway. The Norwegian Danish painter from Skagen is the icon of Nordic impressionism.

At the age of 14 Kroyer came to the Royal Danish Academy of fine arts. As a young artist, he undertook extended trips to Spain, Italy and in particular France, where he studied the Impressionists in Paris from 1877 to 1881. In the summer of 1882, Kroyer came for the first time after Skagen, where he spent every summer from now on was the principal representative of the artist colony.

His pictures show a carefree life of artists, their festivals, walks on the beach and atmospheric evenings in the moonlight.

It is not only the technical mastery and the virtuoso handling of issues of the composition and the colour matching, the Kroyer make a great master. It is also his accurate observation and the fact that the exactly captured scenes of his paintings almost immediately affect the Viewer.

Representation of typical scenes of daily life in painting, which can distinguish between peasant, bourgeois and courtly themes.

The genre reached its peak and immense popularity in the Dutch painting of the 17th century. In the 18th century, especially in France, the courtly and gallant painting comes to the fore while in Germany the bourgeois character was emphasised.

Art Nouveau, known as Jugendstil in Germany, is a term for the art in 1890-1910. The name originates from the Munich-based magazine "Jugend" (Youth) founded in 1896. Internationally, the style is known as Art Nouveau (France), Modern Style (England) or Secession (Austria).

The Art Nouveau conquered all of Europe and there were created countless objects whose spectrum ranges from painting, applied arts to architecture. The Art Nouveau requirement was the artistic creation of everyday objects, that is beauty and practicality should be combined with each other. The desired unit of the artistic ability could only be achieved by individually expressed design, which allowed Art Nouveau to become an early stage of modernity. The essential characteristic of the Art Nouveau is a linear, often asymmetrical ornamentation whose models are to be found particularly in nature and flora.

Major Art Nouveau centers were formed in Munich, Darmstadt, Brussels, Paris and Nancy (Glass Art by Emile Gallé). The Viennese architecture of that time was determined by Otto Wagner and J. Hoffmann. Gustav Klimt created paintings that gave sensual form to the spirit of the Art Nouveau.
