Christen Købke (Danish, 1810 - 1848)
Købke's small precise paintings including, portraits and landscapes, are among the most distinguished created during Denmarks so-called Golden Age. He enrolled as a student at the Royal Academy in Copenhagen and then studied with the established artist C.W.Eckersberg. Købke's father owned a bakery in the Kastel in Copenhagen, a castle serving as a prison. The family lived within the castle compound for seventeen years and it inspired many of Købke's paintings. He concentrated on more rural themes once the family moved further out of Copenhagen in the later 1830s. Købke also travelled to Germany and Italy, extended his range of subjects.
