Observingarts: The Nationalmuseum of Sweden has acquired a nude by Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg
Nationalmuseum has acquired a nude by Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg, a central figure in the art history of the Danish Golden Age. Eckersberg renewed a traditional genre by painting nudes in natural daylight, such as the acquired work. Nationalmuseum has also acquired a second nude and an idyllic interior scene of a mother and child by a window, both painted by Eckersberg’s pupil Ludvig August Smith.
