Carl Wilhelm Holsoe (1863-1935)

Biography of Danish artist Carl Wilhelm Holsoe (1863-1935)

Carl Vilhelm Holsoe (1863-1935), a Danish painter, was born in 1935 in Lyngbye near Arhus in Denmark.

Holsoe studied at the Royal Academy in Copenhagen between 1882-1884 and subsequently at the Artists Studieskole under Peder Severin Kroyer.

In 1886, Holsoe exhibited at Charlottenberg, an interior, a subject for which he was to become renowned. Interior scenes, often sparsely furnished rooms, were a feature of Danish painting in the latter part of the 19th Century. He became enormously popular throughout Scandinavia and the rest of Europe, receiving an honourable mention at the Universal Exposition in Paris and a medal at the Munich Exhibition of 1891. His works can be found in museums in Copenhagen and Munich.
