Hans Andersen Brendekilde (1857-1942) made his début as an artist in 1882. His motifs often depict the most socially disadvantaged members of the rural population. Some of the works possess a neo-religious element, while others are more socio-realistic: for example, Udslidt (Run-Down) (1889), one of his most famous works. Here is a man who died as a result of hard work in the field, while a woman sits next to him and cries out for help. In 1893 he received the Eckersberg Medal.
