CARL LOCHER (Danish / 1851-1915)

The Danish painter and etcher Carl Locher was born in Flensburg, and died in Skagen in the north of Jutland, where he was a member of the Skagen school of Danish Impressionists, alongside P. S. and Marie Kroyer and Michael and Anna Ancher. Carl Locher specialised in seascapes and landscapes. Until 1910, unlike the Anchers and the Kroyers, Locher did not have a comfortable house in Skagen; instead he lived in a felt tent that he set up on whichever beach took his fancy. In 1897 he set up an etching school in Copenhagen, where he taught until 1900. In 1910 he built a house in Skagen where he lived until his death.
