Christen Købke (Danish, 1810 - 1848)

Cecilie Margrethe Petersen, født Købke, kunstnerens søster, 1835, Olie på lærred

Købke’s skarpe observans og fornemmelse for farver var enestående blandt samtidens øvrige danske malere, og han betragtes i dag som en af de allerstørste danske kunstnere. Købke var i samtiden kendt som en ligetil, godmodig og uhøjtidelig person, som ikke bestræbte sig på at skabe opmærksomhed om sig selv. Alligevel opnåede han aldrig en fremtrædende rolle på den danske kunstscene i sin levetid. Der gik 30-40 år efter hans død før hans kunst vandt sand anerkendelse.

Købke's keen sense of observation and sense of colour had no equal among the other Danish artists of the era and today is considered one of the greatest Danish artists of all time. During his day, Købke was known as a straightforward, good-natured and simple-minded person who did not strive to attract attention to himself. He never did, however, obtain a prominent position within the Danish art scene during his own lifetime. His art did not win true recognition until 30-40 years after his death.
