Lorenz Frølich

1820 Copenhagen – 1908 Hellerup

Lorenz Frølich studied under Martinus Rørbye, Christen Købke and Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg. From 1840 he lived abroad for over thirty years. The first stage of his journey took him to Dresden and Munich, where he drew inspiration from the works of Romantic artists such as Joseph von Führich, Ludwig Richter and Eduard Bendemann. After a lengthy stay in Italy (1846–51), Frølich lived and worked mostly in Paris for twenty-two years. In 1873 he returned to Denmark, where he made a name for himself primarily as a history painter.
