When Danish artist Thomas Kluge began to exhibit work in 1994, his photorealist style immediately attracted attention. He has since worked on several public commissions in Denmark including a group portrait of thirteen members of the Merchants' Guild and portraits of the Danish Queen, Margrethe II. He has also collaborated with the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, producing a portrait of the comedian, Rikki Fulton, in 1997. Kluge, who lives in Copenhagen, often works from photographs and looks to the Old Masters for inspiration.
