The exhibition presents for the first time in France an ensemble of major works by Danish painter Severin Kroyer (1851-1909). Some sixty paintings are on display, highlighting the artist's long independent exploration of light colors and the role of light, at all times of the day and throughout the year. For painting enthusiasts, he brought to life the blue hour, the meteorological phenomenon that precedes twilight and mainly occurs on the distant northern coasts. A painter of portraits, genre scenes and landscapes, Severin Kroyer made frequent use of models throughout his career. His celebrity in France was marked by his being awarded in the 1884 Paris Salon, and his reputation grew in Europe after exhibitions of his great paintings, including the infinitely poetic and nostalgic Summer Evening on Skagen's Southern Beach (1893) featuring his wife and a fellow artist.
