Christen Købke: Danish Master of Light
His works include landscapes, portraits of many of his family and closest friends, and depictions of Danish national monuments. Now he is recognised internationally for his well-composed paintings and for his sense of the everyday life.
This well-written catalogue gives an account of Købke's life and highlights the most innovative aspects of his work and his fascination with painterly immediacy in the treatment of light and atmosphere. Christen Købke: Danish Master of Light accompanied an exhibition at the National Gallery, London and the National Galleries of Scotland, Edinburgh.
