The Skovgaard Museum centres on the art and lives of Peter Christian Skovgaard and his children Joakim (1856 1933), Niels (1858-1938) and Susette (1863- 1937). Though his name may have faded slightly from the national memory today, Peter Christian Skovgaard was one of the most important painters of Denmark’s Romanticist ‘Golden Age’. “He was both a direct influence on his time and an interesting reflection of it,” says museum director Anne Mette Villumsen. “But he didn’t just influence his own time; he and his fellow Romanticists have had a huge impact on modern Denmark.”
