SMK HIGHLIGHT 💡
P. S. Krøyer painted ‘Boys Bathing at Skagen. Summer Evening’ in 1899 on the threshold of a new century. The children and young people represent renewal and confidence in the future. To Krøyer, whose own life was clouded by long episodes of deep depression, the liquid and dreamy blue is not the colour of melancholy, but the blue colour of hope.
Among all the Skagen painters, P. S. Krøyer was the most brilliant and also the most celebrated in his own day. He would make any composition work as perfectly as could be, using only a few simple devices.
Let’s all stay confident in the future, even though the times may be clouded. 🌤️
