Portrait of Frederik Sodring

Christen Kobke was a 19th century Danish painter. He was the son of a baker and entered the art school in Copenhagen in 1821 at the age of eleven. He studied there until 1831 and began to paint from nature in the Realist style. Kobke eventually became known for his paintings of Danish landmarks and historical buildings as well as of portraits of friends, family and fellow artists.

Kobke traveled to Dresden and then to Italy where he painted a number of landscapes. These landscapes were met with little favor upon his return to Denmark , and though he was talented, found few commissions and little attention during his lifetime.
