SMK, Statens Museum for Kunst’s spring exhibition features the female artist Anna Ancher, married to renowned Danish Skagens maler, Michael Anker. The couple were part of a surprisingly modern group of both male and female painters, also known as the “impressionists of the north“.

Anna Ancher (1859 – 1935) was the only one who grew up in Skagen. Before Anna got married she found a private teacher in Copenhagen, who believed she was truly talented. Some of her paintings can be compared to the work of the French impressionists in the way she puts light into her colours.
