A Painter from Danish Golden Age: Christen Købke

Öz The subject of this work is Christen Købke, who gained fame with his paintings in Denmark's Golden Age and acquired the identity of Denmark's national artist. The Golden Age covers the period from the early 1800s to 1850s in Denmark's cultural life, and art and culture gain importance in this period. Traditionally it is linked to the Danish Golden Age, painter Eckersberg and landscape painting. Historically, the Danish Golden Age, during the Napoleonic wars, with the British bombardment of Copenhagen in 1807.; in the artistic context, it begins with the innovative views of Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg in 1815. Art has developed based on concepts such as poverty and war in daily life. The artists have created irresistible images that invite the viewer to dream but are impressed by details that seem almost unreal.In this study, the prominent pictures of Christen Købke were selected and analyzed iconographically.The visual culture of the Danish Golden Age is addressed with a focus on Christen Købke's works. In order to fully define this period in European history, the place of Købke's works in the visual culture of the Danish Golden Age and its interaction with the European painting art of the 19th century were emphasized in our study.
