Anna Ancher


Anna Ancher was the only Skagen painter, who was born and grew up in Skagen. She was a young girl, when painters began to travel to Skagen. Anna and Michael Ancher were married in 1880. Their daughter Helga was born in 1883 and they lived together in Skagen for the rest of their lives. As a woman Anna Ancher did not have access to education at the Academy of Fine Arts. Instead, in the late 1870s, she attended Vilhelm Kyhn's private art school for women in Copenhagen. She made her Copenhagen début in 1880 and soon enjoyed success as a painter. She portrayed life in Skagen, frequently on a small scale and usually indoors. Her models were family members and the people of Skagen, and she was particularly interested in capturing colours and light.
