Biography

Peder Mork Monsted was born on 10th December 1859 near to Grenaa in Denmark. He began his artistic training in Aarhus before travelling to Copenhagen to study at the Academy of Copenhagen from 1875 to 1879. He was much influenced by his teacher Andries Fritz, court painter to Prince Ferdinand of Aarhus, and he also studied figure painting under Julius Exner and Niels Simonsen. 

 

Monsted’s style developed further in the studio of Peder Severin Kroyer and through a brief period with William Adolphe Bouguereau. Although established in Copenhagen, he travelled throughout Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. His work was frequently exhibited in Charlottenborg and at the Paris and Munich Salons. He is widely recognised for his luminous landscapes often featuring water, which demonstrate an almost photographic quality and supreme technical skill. 

 

Exhibited: Copenhagen, Paris, Munich

 

Museums: Aalborg, Bautzen, Randers
