Anna Ancher is considered to be one the most important painters on the Danish art scene.

The starting point for her was an artist colony in the Danish city Skagen. She was a part of the colony her entire career, but found much of her inspriration abroad – especially in Paris.

Within the well-known motif of her hometown that she painted so often, she experimented with light, colors and simplification. And she did it in such a radical way that her paintings contributed to a rethinking of Danish painting.
